Last night, June 30th, a heavy downpour of rain destroyed a lot of houses and homes in Bureng Village in the Lower River Region of The Gambia. A few hundred people have lost their homes and a lot of personal belongings. According to reports we received and images we have seen, there is hardly a home that is spared by the torrential rains.

The destruction is so extensive and runs into the thousands of dollars.

The main village mosque seen above is damaged and the carpets inside soaked wet. With no equipment to immediately dry the space, a lot of these will need immediate replacement.

Bureng is a small town that is several hundred years old. It is located in the Lower River Region of The Gambia, with an estimated population of less than 5000 people. The population of Bureng are largely poor, and are generally a subsistence farming community that largely depend on small scale agricultural production and small remittances from relatives who were lucky to go to school and currently work in the cities or live abroad. The literacy rate (Western education) of adults over 40 years is about 10%, with women at an even lower literacy level. The rainy season is a very vulnerable season for most in this community and other communities in rural Gambia. By this time food stocks are exhausted and most people struggle daily to make ends meet. 







So as a charity registered to assist the community of Bureng, the Bureng Association USA, Inc. seeks your urgent and generous support to help the distraught people of Bureng. All donations will be sent to Bureng immediately to assist with buying food and helping to rebuild homes. Bureng Association Inc was formed in 2016 by natives of the small town who are residing in the USA.

Sincerely,

Alieu Darboe
Secretary General
Bureng Association USA, Inc.

A massive thank you to all our donors and supporters. Although we could not raise our targeted $10,000, the amount we raised was entirely sent to support the victims of the rain/wind disaster in Bureng. Our Association, Bureng Association-USA Inc,. matched the amounts raised here, plus a few extra hundred dollars for the benefit of the victims. In essence, we raised about $1600 after Gofundme fees, etc, but we distributed about $4000, with $2400 coming directly from our Association.
This campaign is now officially closed, and myself, the President and our entire executive and members are very grateful for your support.

Since the wind and rain disaster that hit our hometown of Bureng in The Gambia, The Bureng Association USA, Inc. and its sister associations in the UK - UKJA and UKBA sent assistance D260,000 (Two hundred sixty thousand dalasis) to buy corrugated iron sheets for roofing, rice and some cash to victims.

There is still a lot more to do for full recovery, so we count on you for support.
