The detention center for minors in Dakar is beyond its max capacity. Our Church has purchased toothbrushes, toothpastes and bars of soap for the 101 boys currently detained.

Help for those affected by flooding

After the heavy rains and flooding in the city last week, we contacted one of our mission partners to ask how the people in his area of banlieue are coping. He told us of 20 families that he’s is in contact with whose homes have flooded and are taking temporary shelter in a schoolbuilding. We have coordinated efforts with Pastor Fall to help these families meet some basic needs by providing them with a gift of rice, oil, soap and cleaning materials.

Next weekend we will go with the Falls to the school to give the donations. We would like to invite you to join us if you are interested in this missions opportunity. We will leave from Dakar Academy (Hann Mariste) at 14.30 on Saturday. Please contact Jan: icfdakar@gmail.com.
