¡ FIFTEEN YEARS ON THE FRONT LINE !

Written by Fundacion

 

In February of 2002, Asun Fiochi and Mario Llonch, happened to go for the fist time to the village of Mbackombel. This village is located in the middle of the Senegalese Savannah and at that point, people from that village didn't have any infrastructure, not even proper houses.

 

The only thing they had, were two small nursery classrooms, run by the sisters of l'Immaculé Conception.

 

Asun and Mario, made the decision to create a Foundation to help the children in this area.

 

Fifteen years later, Mbackombel looks a completely different town. Now they have houses made of cement blocks and a Nursery and Primary School, with 17 classrooms and 510 children attending classes - all managed by the Foundation.

 

In addition to this, other projects have been completed: a boarding school for the secondary children was built in the city of Mbour, a woman’s centre where they are supported and helped and a maternity clinic where more than 5,000 patients have attended and there are over 200 deliveries a year. In addition to this in order to meet the needs of the Senegalese State, a furthers 30 classrooms and two administrative offices have been built, where more than 1,800 children attend classes.

 

To be able to personally control and track the progress of all these projects, Mario and Asun live in Mbackombel an average of six months a year.

CONTRIBUTION

Written by Fundacion

 

We are very pleased to announce that this month we have been fortunate to receive two very important contributions that will benefit two important groups: Older people with cataract problem who need surgery and also our sponsored children that need glasses.


These two contributions that have come at the same time are:


1- The Fundación Barraquer has sent us two ophthalmologists, who selected 149 among more than 1000 consulted, to whom Dra. Elena Barraquer will operate during her visit in January.


2- The Fundación Cione (La ruta de la Luz), co-funded by the Fundación Repsol, than has sent us two optometrists, who have been in charge of checking the vision of more than 500 children from our school and who will later provide us 150 glasses that would be needed.


Our sponsors and their elders are very grateful for these "visits".


It is very important for our Charity that these organizations have trusted us.

Collaborations between institutions

Written by Fundacion

 

Since last year, we have a collaborative relationship between our Charity and "Foment", who have provided us with Toshiba’s computer equipment.


This year "Foment del Treball" has strengthened its collaborative relationship for the projects that our Charity is carrying out in Senegal.

 

Both institutions have decided to extend the agreement over the next two years, and the alliance has been agreed and signed by the President of Por una Sonrisa en África, Mario Llonch; and the president of "Foment del Treball", Joaquim Gay Montellà.

We are expanding

Written by Fundacion

 

We have a new classroom in our school in  Mbackombel !!!

Thank you to the Association “Pescadores por Senegal”, led by Herminia Arellano, we have been able to build a new classroom. Therefore, the children that were temporarily studding in the library will now be relocated in this new classroom.

This classroom will be the third one sponsored by this Association.

 The amount of children enrolling is constantly increasing due to the work that we have been doing during the past years, educating the families, showing them how important the education is for their children's future.

For the next academic year, we will need a new classroom and .... more children to be sponsored!!!
