The Jahaly Health Centre will be the base station for a mobile vaccination team of the Gambian Ministry of Health for Jahaly and the surrounding area. Project Aid has offered the ministry working space and free overnight stays at the Jahaly Health Centre. A second mobile vaccination team works from neighbouring Brikama-Ba. The vaccination teams travel to the individual villages around Jahaly and make an offer of vaccination (Johnson & Johnson)  to the population. The international COVAX initiative has delivered 105,000 more vaccine doses to The Gambia. The Ministry of Health has developed a vaccination plan for all locations throughout The Gambia.

The mobile vaccination team is expected to arrive at the Jahaly Health Centre in the next few days. The arrival is delayed due to logistical difficulties.

In addition, the Jahaly Health Centre has started an education programme among patients and in the surrounding villages. Jahaly Health Centre staff are informing village elders, alkalos and imams about the need for a vaccination against COVID-19. They spread the word. They use village meetings, Friday prayers and local multipliers who march through the villages with drums and pass on the information about the vaccination. Patients who visit the Jahaly Health Centre are also educated daily about the vaccination and encouraged to get vaccinated. The message is: “Corona is real. We have to take the pandemic really seriously. We can all fight it together. No one is safe until everyone is safe. Vaccination is safe and it works.”

Initial feedback from the villages is encouraging: village elders have expressed their support for the vaccination campaign. They say they are now aware of the seriousness of the Corona virus and how important it is to protect themselves and their villages. People in the villages are willing to be vaccinated, they say.

Many residents in the surrounding villages do not have access to information. The opinion that COVID-19 does not exist is widespread in the rural areas.

The Jahaly-Madina kindergarten in Jahaly is finally allowed to reopen on October 28th after a forced break of more than seven months. Schools and kindergartens in The Gambia have been closed since March 18 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

For two days, teachers and educators have been preparing the reopening of the kindergarten. First of all, the kindergarten team cleaned all the classrooms from the dust of the last seven months. Then the rooms are cleaned and the outside area is brought back to shape. Minor repairs to the buildings are also necessary. Broken chairs are repaired. Finally, the team develops a hygiene concept in order to meet the requirements of the health authorities. Two days ago, all buildings were thoroughly fumigated by volunteers from the Gambia Red Cross. Since yesterday, parents can register their children for admission to the kindergarten. Not to forget the content-related preparation for the upcoming academic year.

While the kindergarten was closed, all of the Jahaly Health Centre’s patients were escorted across the kindergarten compound – hands were washed and disinfected and masks were distributed to each patient. The classrooms and the large open stage at the playground were used as a waiting area in order to be able to keep the 1.50 meter distance between the patients. The team of Jahaly Health centre now has to work out an alternative setting for this.

The Gambia is the country in West Africa that has been hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, no corona infection has been found in Jahaly – but there are also no test options available at all.

Sign-board-Jahaly-Health-Centre-Buschklinik-3I, Matthias Ketteler, for and on behalf of myself as well as the board of Projekthilfe Gambia e. V. (Germany) and the management of Project Aid The Gambia NGO A 57, would like to express our deep concerned about the current political situation in the country. We have been providing development assistance for more than 30 years. Our spirits, our hearts and minds have been with the People of The Gambia in particular the masses, the old and young, the faces and lives that we have touched for the past thirty years and will continue to do so.

The friendliness and warmth that many people have sown us during our work in The Gambia is unique. This has deeply touched our hearths and ultimately gave us strength, motivation and passion to build even more friendship. We also hope to foster development in future which will benefit the people of The Gambia especially the people living in the rural area who desperately needs help and we are fully committed to fulfill our objectives by supporting them even more.

Our work has always been and will surely remain beneficial to the helpless, the sick, men and women, old and young people of the Republic of The Gambia. Being cognizant of the fact that our work does not entails only the provision of Aid but also to show love and dedication which undoubtedly helps the people including the sick as it changes their lives for the better.

As an International NGO we have closely followed the current events in The Gambia from December 1st 2016 to date and cannot help but to express our concern for the safety of The Gambian people whom we served. We see our goals as a 100% dedicated NGO, facing the possibility of not being made to manifest the current developments and worry for the future of our friends, our employees and extended families that are presently seeking for a brighter and better future.

On that note and with nothing but goodwill and love, we therefore appeal to all political leaders to engage in dialogue and commitment that will benefit the People of The Gambia. To make decision based on respect of the laws of The Gambia and to take account of the wishes of the people of The Gambia and the values of peace, ethics and  secular coexistence of all the religions, tribes and cultures that  in our opinion is the most priceless gift of The Gambia. This is something so unique, so rare in the world we live in today.

This is the beauty of The People of The Gambia, which in our opinion must be persevered and be made the corner stone of any decision or action that the different parties will take. It is also our hope that all decisions and measures taken must be towards the prevention of anarchy to cause harm to the people of The Gambia. This instrument is therefore the foundation to peaceful transition process that is manifested by the entire population.

We urge and wish for a peaceful outcome of the current situation in The Gambia, without threat or violence. It is evident to see that this is the opinion of the majority of the population of Gambians at home and abroad including friends of The Gambia. The people of The Gambia would like to see a future without fear, a future of new dawns, new hopes and new beginnings. This fact has been made evident by the determination of Gambian People. We express our prayers and thus demonstrate our goodwill gesture to support the aspiration of the Gambian people who deserves to be respected at all cost. It is the duty of any government to respect and implement the decision and choice of her people.

The very foundation of democracy is built on the this principle of respect of the choice of the people, by the people, and this constitutional right must be not only defended but also respected by the politically elected representatives that are in office by way of a democratically elected and chosen people and government.

We hope that those entrusted with this mandate will act solely in the interest of peace, love and the successful future of The Gambia.

Thought for today and a gentle reminder.

In peace and friendship always,

Matthias Ketteler, chairman and Good Will Ambassador At Large of The Republic of The Gambia, in the name of the board of Projekthilfe Gambia e. V. (Germany) and the management of Project Aid The Gambia NGO A 57.

Team-Gambia-Spendentour-2017At the beginning of the year 2017 nine members of the north German branch of Projekthilfe Gambia (Project Aid The Gambia) start their next humanitarian convoy to The Gambia. The will drive three mini-busses all the way down to Jahaly. The mini-busses will be sold and then serve as taxis.

To cope these challenges we kindly ask for your support. We raise two Euro for each of the 6,600 kilometers to be driven. We aim to reach 20,000 Euro of overall donations in favor of Project Aid.

Erinnern Sie sich an die Fußball-Jungs von Jahaly? Sie hatten uns im September auf der Moringa-Plantage geholfen. Jetzt haben sie als Dankeschön Bälle und gebrauchte  Fußball-Trikots bekommen. Vielen Dank dafür an den SV Burgaltendorf.

The villagers of Jahaly have – in their very own way – thanked for the tractor, which Project Aid The Gambia is providing  to the farmers of the village since the end of September. The second-hand tractor itself was a generous donation of the German charity “Friedensdorf (Peace Village) International” in Oberhausen/Germany.

In early October 80 villagers of Jahaly showed up at the Moringa plantation behind Jahaly Health Centre and kindergarten and helped the workers for an entire day whith the weeding of grass and weeds. During the last rainy season which seems to be over now, it has rained so much that the five Moringa workers of the plantation can hardly keep up with the weeding of the field of the 10,000 Moringa trees. Even the Imam (leader of the Muslim community) of Jahaly took part in the action. In the evening, half of the plantation was clean.

The tractor can be hired by the farmers for work in their fields. The farmers pay the diesel they use, and Project Aid The Gmbia pays the salary of the driver and takes over the costs of the maintenance of the tractor.
