Nurse Linda Barnes Helps Children In Gambia

My name is Linda Barnes, and I am a registered nurse at Princess Lodge Care Centre. In January 2017 I travelled to The Gambia with a team for a charity, Empower The Gambia.
The aim of the charity is to support and encourage those living in the villages to be more productive and self sufficient. 

I visited the maternity/medical centre in one of the villages and was horrified to see foam mattresses being used, which meant they were unable to be cleaned putting the patients and nursing mothers at risk of infection.

On return to England I spoke to Julie, the manager at Princess Lodge where I work to see if she could help me with some fundraising in order to purchase some new mattresses. Julie agreed and gave Enpower £70, half of the money collected in the Easter raffle, I was also given money by a friend and my mother which enabled us to purchase five new mattresses, and eight new mattress protectors donated by Princess Lodge at a later date.

In February this year I returned to The Gambia with a team and was able witness the delivery of the mattresses and covers which were gratefully received.

I was also able to spend time with a community nurse I have been supporting since my visit last year in starting a clean hands campaign, we provided posters and have an ongoing appeal for soap which is shipped out regularly. It is being piloted in one of the villages, I was able to join the villagers in a hand washing demonstration, witness the use of the tippy tap at the school and learn’t that the incident of diarrhoea has been greatly reduced.

Our project for next year is the promotion of good oral care and prevention of tooth decay in the children.

How You Can Help Lynda

During out Easter Raffle, we would like to help and support one of our nurses here at Princess Lodge Care Home to raise some money to help the ladies and gentlemen and their children in Gambia.

The vision of Empower is to link individuals, organisations and charities together to benefit the communities of rural Gambia through education, training and empowerment to alleviate poverty. Empower has been linking with communities in the central and Upper River Region since 2008
Pastor Paul Mendy who used to be Headmaster of Agrape Nursery School, Bansang and is now based on the coast, is our Gambian co-ordinator. We have Kadija over seeing Sara Kunda and Kebba reporting for Kerawan. Barry used to be based at Sara Kunda Medical Centre but is now working as a public Health officer but advises us on medical issues. Ada out driver overseas the transportation of our shipments when they arrive in the Gambia, while at the same time is going to college to train as an electrician and being sponsored by Empower. 
In January 2017 6 volunteers which included one of our nurses here at Princess Lodge Lynda Barnes, returned 6 days early from Gambia in the early hours of 21st January. However, they were still able to achieve a; their projects in Sara Kunda, a village 10km from Farafenni on the North bank of the river Gambia before the trip was curtailed.
Two bikes repaired by recycles, a salvation army initiative based Swindon, were handed to the first 12 health workers who travel from their remote villages to the medical centre by foot. Osman was trained by two men called Phil and Steve to maintain the bikes given a crate of tools and bike spares.
The two kitchen gardens were given watering can and tools while the women’s centre received boxes of children’s clothing donated by customers of the Emporium Shops.

First aid materials – plasters, bandages, gloves, thermometers, Medicines, soap.
Training materials for maintaining bikes, sewing, garden etc.
Educational materials, books, pencils, pens, solar calculators. Sports Equipment
Sewing equipment. 
You could also donate £30 for a child to stay in education for a year which would also supply there uniform, or £15 for a Mattress for a hospital bed!
Clothes which can be handed in to the nearest Empower shop in Swindon.

We would like to raise as much as possible with our Easter raffle this year so we can donate 50% of what we make to the Empower Charity. 
The other 50% will go into the Resident fund. 
If you can help in any way or would like some more information, please done hesitate to ask Lynda Barnes our Registered Nurse here at Princess Lodge Care Home.
