THE MARVICOSE FOUNDATION

THE MARVICOSE FOUNDATION

Main aim of the charity

To help the less privilege in providing them with clothing, mostly the women and the young people wear rags cloths or worn out and dirty cloths, the children go around naked all due to lack of cloths. giving out cloths to the needy makes them happy, especially now that the winter season is here, thereby helping to prevent the cold on them.

How the employee got involved and why

Gambia is small country with so much struggles, we have seen a lot of people suffering because of shelter, medical health, lack of food, clothing etc., especially the young ones. we decided to help even though we might not be financially strong but we could do something small to change a life. We travelled to a village called Kafuta, we visited some homes and we saw how bad they needed help, so we said to ourselves that we want to change that situation, even if we cannot change it all we will change some of it and we did.

What work does the employee do for charity?

we took some clothes to give to the people around because it was a big problem for them, and now that it's winter they needed the clothes now more than ever, we visited them and we spoke to the elders in the village who have told us how happy they were and what this really meant to them and how they benefited from it because they hardly get people to help them which was so touching. we decided that we will visit those areas every 2weeks two give out clothes are other things.

What impact would winning have on the charity?

Winning this will change a whole lot of things for us, its not about the money but the life's we will change as well. we want people to assist us as well but they can only do that once they noticed that we have done a whole lot of things for that village and its only by winning we can do big things for them, they do not have schools, they do not have standard health care which is very important, so if we win this DHL GOT HEART competition I believe we will change everything in that village, which they are counting on us to assist them with.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

Winning would be a dream come true for us. I just imagine putting a smile on a face, solving someone's problem, clothing the naked, feeding the hungry, providing medical solutions for others, as Christians if this is achieved even in death we will be happy. This is not something we want to stop doing, we will make sure we continuing helping until we are satisfied that everything is fine with them. so we are counting on DHL to help us achieve and make this project a success.
