Our Roots

Our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly in the actions of our initiatives. We understand that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently. That is why we decided to launch the UK-based aidgambia - The Community Health Charity (TCHC) in 2011 to  better support the health care and support of the Gambian community.

The Gambia

Officially the Republic of The Gambia is the smallest country in mainland Africa. Its motto ‘Progress, Peace and Prosperity’ is worthy but The Gambia is one of the poorest countries in the world reliant on a limited agricultural base and with no significant mineral or other natural resources. 75% of the population depends on crops and livestock for its livelihood. 48% of the population is below the poverty line and 10% lives on less than $2 a day. Economic progress remains highly dependent on foreign aid. Lack of good education, poor health facilities and lack of sport and recreation  are three of the key areas that hinder development (UNICEF / UNO9659 16/01/2021). The quickest and most effective way to help people in The Gambia is to donate to a charity such as aidgambia The  Community Health Charity (TCHC) which prioritises these areas.


Please donate now to help improve health care and awareness in The Gambia.

aidgambiaTCHC is registered with HMRC as a charity for Gift Aid purposes. Charities Reference EW31468. This was confirmed in March 2015, and from that moment, every £ donated by a UK taxpayer gains an extra 25 pence in matched funding (GiftAid)
