Like any other country, Senegal has been forced to take exceptional measures to combat the expansion of COVID-19.


By ministerial order, we have closed our Mbackombel school, the Balabougou, Wirtheboky and Soussane Mbadane nursery classes, as well as the Mbour Residence.

But considering that this action was not enough, our new Co-Director and volunteer, Judit Serra, took the initiative to plan a direct action that could help the inhabitants of the small towns, where our students reside.

To this end, the last April 8th, we set up a caravan, consisting of a truck and two cars, headed by Judit Serra and Celine Diouf (director of the Residence), Gane Kama (former student of our school who is currently in 6th year of Medicine ), as well as a couple of students. They visited the towns, where in each one of them  Gane Kama made an awareness talk, and they also distributed rice sacks, masks, gloves, liquid soap , alcohol gel, etc.

It was a very hard day, intense but emotional at the same time. The day didn't help much as temperatures of up to 43º were registered in the shade.

Our thanks to all who have collaborated to carry out this action; as well as to those who regularly collaborate with our Foundation!
