While we were doing that, we found out that actually nothing is known about mental disabilities at all in The Gambia at all. Resulting in poor living conditions, abandonment and even death. Luckily people are waking up to the fact that these children are in fact precious. We are working with partners in The Gambia to increase knowledge, we send volunteers and interns to do the same. Most of all we are showing people what these kids need and how much better they feel when they get it.
I will be showcasing the children one by one on this blog. Can't wait? Check the site Second Home or simply leave a message on this blog to ask for information.
This is Buba. He is 12. He is one of my favourites due to his sweet nature.
