Overnight 7th July 2021, Gambia was subject to extremely high winds (reuters news link)
Many people's houses were destroyed and lots of damage has occurred everywhere. People have lost their lives due to falling masonry and flying corrugate sheets.
We are trying to help as many people as we can by providing funds for replacing their roofs to provide immediate shelter and help repair damaged buildings.
Our schools and masjids and gardens have also been affected (pictures attached). Our agriculture gardens which provide a source of food and income to the communities saw many trees and plants having been uprooted.
Please consider donating any financial help towards helping Gambians repair and reconstruct. Your donation will be distributed as cash funds to those we have identified in need of help.
Donate either as sadaqah or zakat.
