Markus Lanz, a well-known German journalist and TV host, supports “Project Aid” since 2003. Markus Lanz has visitied Jahaly several times.

“I have convinced myself at two visits personally that the donations actually do reach the projects in Jahaly. The “Jahaly Health Centre” has treated more than 500,000 patients since 1991 and looks as clean as on the opening day 25 years ago. This is very unusual for Africa and shows that the “Jahaly Health Centre” really is a model for the whole of Africa. This was made possible by the great work of the dedicated clinic team in Jahaly and the generous help of many donors and sponsors in Germany. I also ask you for your kind support of the new project – the Moringa plantation in Jahaly. Through the purchase of Moringa products you support the work of the project and help create jobs in Jahaly. The sale proceeds will go to 100% back to the projects. On behalf of the people of Jahaly I say: thank you !”

          Yours, Markus Lanze83ef7ac1e

RDI_Health-Centre-Buniadu-01From February 1st, 2017, in cooperation with the German NGO Riverboat Doctors International e.V., we operate the Health Centre in the village Buniadu at the North Bank of the River Gambia. About 1,000 out-patients are being treated monthly. The Gambian staff of Health Centre Buniadu consists of a nurse/midwife, seven auxiliary nurses, two cleaners and two watchmen. The Health Centre is equipped with a water supply and a solar power system. The cooperation of the two organisations is agreed to initially last until end of July 2017.

Bild_12In 2011/2012 we have built a model clinic in the village Njaba Kunda at the North bank of the River Gambia. The clinic was handed over to the Gambian government in April 2012. The existing health centre of Njaba Kunda was in a pitiful state: the buildings were run down, hygienic conditions were not present, electricity and water supply there was only on hourly basis. We changed that and turned the Njaba Kunda Health Centre into a role model for all government health centres in The Gambia. How we did that? Our report on the grand opening of the new Njaba Kunda Health Centre on April 3th, 2012, and further information please read | here |.
