When disaster strikes or many need assistance just for daily sustenance, the ABWE Gambia team has stepped in to provide a helping hand in Jesus’ name. These funds are used on an as needed basis when there is a call for widespread assistance. On a couple of occasions, hundreds of 100 pound bags of rice were distributed to every household in several villages in close proximity to the Ndungu Kebbeh Health Centre. On one occasion, bags of cement were distributed to every person who had a portion of their house collapse during a particularly wet rainy season.
