Seaford Rotary Club helps hospital in The Gambia

Staff retention at a hospital in the Gambia is now one hundred per cent thanks to some sterling fundraising by the Rotary Club of Seaford.

The club said one of the challenges facing the Bansang Hospital was getting and retaining staff, especially as many staff migrate to Europe and North America.

This current project is being run in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Brentwood a Becket.

The two clubs paid to build three staff accommodation units which have recently been completed.

The Rotary Club of Seaford paid in £1,500, of which £500 is being given by a private, anonymous supporter.

Bansang Hospital is the farthest hospital from the nation’s infrastructure base, serving the poorest of The Gambia’s population.

It is the largest as well as the most strained of The Gambia’s tertiary care hospitals, serving a population catchment area of nearly 600,000 people. For more information visit
