Cyfeillion Sankwia Friends - supporting sustainable development in Gambia

News and Activities


1. We are currently investigating the possibility of providing the clinic with medication for the maternity unit. This will be done in co-operation with a charity based in Cardiff ” Life for African mothers” ( This scheme ,if adopted, will provide drugs for the tratment of eclampsia and post partum haemorrhage.

2. Our main aim as a project for January 2014 is to provide the primary school serving the village (Kani Kunda Lower Basic School) with electricity and educational equipment and materials. The intention is to provide a state of the art solar system thus providing energy to the whole school. This school, has never had the benefit of electricity. Accordingly we are busily trying to raise sufficient funds. We anticipate that the cost of the system will be approximately £15,000. ( Quotations are being currently sought). If successful the system will be shipped out in a container in December 2013.

We are once again extremely grateful to Mr Delwyn Williams of Mon Caravans for providing us with a container free of charge. This will be the third container that this kind gentleman has provided to the charity.

The school has very little by way of teaching aids or materials, and it is hoped that such materials will be donated to the chsarity for shipping to the Gambia. If you are able to assist please contact either Myrddin Owens (07788134844) or Val Roberts (07980986375).
