Posted on by scottmaciver

Recently, the contents of the container sent from Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, in Scotland to Kabekel, the Gambia was opened and the clothing and other contents were distributed to members of the village. The school furniture, donated from the old Nicolson Institute school in Stornoway, will be kept in storage until the school classrooms in Kabekel are constructed.

We would like to thank everyone who donated items to be sent to Kabekel. It is much appreciated by all in Kabekel. To God be the glory, ‘Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God’ (1 Corinthians 10:31)
