Since more than 7 years, the sponsored children of the GBG have been supported by the means of the emergency aid fund, in cases where the German sponsors can not provide additional support for the sponsored children. In the past, for example, destroyed walls were rebuilt, rice purchased and distributed, roofs of buildings repaired, severe diseases healed, wounds treated, school fees paid, and other small and great supports for many poor children and adults in the Gambia provided.
In recent years, the emergency aid fund has always been very important. Each year the teams are faced with short-term help requirements and are looking to the additional aid funds which provides the flexibility to provide support wherever required.
It facilitates the work on site very much and can make the difference with the available financial resources.
