The Gambian Diaspora Healthcare Initiative
Healthcare is one of the most essential human requirements. Gambians deserve a better health care system that promotes quality care and peace of mind. Sadly this is not the system we have today.
GDHI would like to significantly improve the healthcare system in The Gambia and provide better care of the sick and to build healthier lives by providing medical supplies and through education, advocacy, training and support.
Championing for a healthy nation - To live well, live long and with peace of mind for all.
Gambian Diasporas coming together to see how best we can help our nation improve the QUALITY of the healthcare system and make it more accessible for all
The healthcare system in Gambia is in dire situation. Hospitals and clinics in the country are operating with inadequate basic supplies.
Help Our Gambia
Our fund raising goal is $50,000. However we need $25,000 to ship a container full of medical supplies and equipment worth $300,000 from Medshare in Atlanta. Included in that amount is the procurement of the container, insurance, inspection, people to load the container, storage of the supplies until shipment and technical support for the medical equipments once they reach the Gambia at any time. The additional $25,000 is to expedite the shipping of pending second container once we are able to clear the first one.
