2013, March 20, Students Isatou and David Robert

March 20, 2013

Today I started the morning by hand washing clothes in a bucket, having instant coffee (Italian Roast VIA Starbucks brand) and had a couple of Scottish Shortbread, which was leftover from our snacks up-country.

Today Essa and I traveled to New Life Upper Basic School to pay Isatou’s school fee and exam fees. We were lucky because Isatou and her brother David were in the schoolyard at the time of our arrival. It was good to see them, a first time since my arrival in The Gambia.

We plan  to have a meeting with the CEO of the Jammeh Foundation and the entire  family on Saturday. We will be setting up a medical account so that Sonnie,  the mother can be seen.  Her leg is swollen and has been bothering her a lot limiting her ability to work.  This limitation results in the family having less food to eat – it is a fact here in The Gambia – life can be very, very hard.
