Kids returns from overseas treatment

Thursday, December 21, 2017

Four Gambian kids, who went to Germany for medical treatment returned home on Monday after receiving successful medical treatment.

The kids were received on arrival at the Banjul International Airport by officials of Project-Aid The Gambia and their parents.

The children’s trip was sponsored by Peace Village in Germany in collaboration with Project-Aid The Gambia.

Speaking to journalists at the tarmac of the airport, Ebrima Camara, Project Coordinator at the Project-Aid The Gambia, noted that the kids went for overseas treatment and they came back healthy.

“I am very happy to see the kids back,” he said, adding that this was possible thanks to the Germany bond with the Peace Village.

Mr. Camara said Peace Village is working with Project-Aid The Gambia to support kids who need overseas treatment in the world, while thanking Peace Village for sponsoring the whole trip.

Project-Aid The Gambia gives support to kids because they would come over and examine the kid and if they could offer any help to the kid, then they would take them for overseas treatment.

Lamin Manjang, a staff of Peace Village in Germany, said their organisation helps children in the world who are not well, adding that he works with Peace Village based in Germany.

He said that he came down with four kids who have finished their medical treatment in Germany and disclosed that eight other Gambian kids are still under treatment in Germany.

 Yaya Marr, father of one of the patients, said he was very much impressed because this was the second time Peace Village is able to convey the kids to Germany for medical treatment.
