House for Shelter Gambia in Gunjur

Shelter Gambia will soon have its own house in Gunjur. The house is being built by the Dresden-Banjul-Organisation (see link). It will share the same compound with a Health Post, so that medical care can be provided at all times, if it would be needed.The house is surrounded by mango trees, and water and electricity are installed. We are looking forward to the completion of the construction works in a few weeks, so that we can host women there for their convalescence time. (See link)
