YOUR HEALTH is OUR CONCERN
Dear Friends and Members of GHM (UK)
The Gambia Healthcare Matters (UK) Charity Organisation exist purely out of its members love for country, desire and passion to help better The Gambia’s healthcare system for every individual living in or visiting The Gambia.
Dubbed the Smiling Coast of Africa, The Gambia, our beautiful small country on the West African coast is laced with lovely beaches and a mecca for holidaymakers. Our healthcare system however, leaves much to be desired.
For a population of 2 million, for many years our motherland still struggles to compete with its neighbouring countries to have in place, a healthcare system that all can be proud of. People who cannot afford a fee for their treatment in hospital die every day from communicable and non communicable diseases or wounds which could have been easily managed or treated. Those who can afford it, seek medical help either in the neighbouring country, Senegal or elsewhere in Europe or America, because of the sheer lack of the necessary and/or proper medical equipment or medication in the country.
At Gambia Healthcare Matters, we believe health and well-being are crucial for all. It is also our belief that the healthcare of every individual, either citizen, immigrant or visiting tourist matters. We want the dwellers in The Gambia to boast of a healthcare system that has the needed facilities, equipment, medication and human resources that it yearns for a better healthcare.
Our aim is to support by working hand in hand with The Gambia’s Ministry of Health, the Primary and Secondary Healthcare Service providers in the country to help effect change for a better healthcare. We aim to do this by raising funds, gather necessary equipment and medication for The Gambia our homeland.
It might be a daunting task, but I believe if we all, either Gambian or person who loves The Gambia join in, these important goals will soon be a reality. With your help, we can carry out this invaluable humanitarian effort to better serve The Gambia.
At GHM for The Gambia our homeland, the "Healthcare is Our Concern"
In your service
