Who We Are

Partnering to provide quality health care for Brikama and its surrounding population

Brikama Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in Washington State in 2009, and incorporated in 2011. It is our goal to provide Brikama Health Center and its staff with basic medical equipment and supplies. In doing so, not only are we empowering the staff to provide proper prognosis and treatment but we also contribute to healthy communities.

Our Approach

One of Our Programs

Needs Assessment: The Brikama Society closely and actively interacts with the staff of Brikama Health Center and stakeholders in the region such as the Brikama Pupil Society. In collaboration with the staff and stakeholders, we have been recently provided a 30-item list that is extremely needed to enhance the quality of healthcare delivery in the facility. These items include but not limited to alcohol based sanitizers, blood pressure machines, oxygen concentrators, wheel chairs, and suction machines.

Funding

Our main source of funding is largely dependent on individual, member and Organizational donations. Fund raiser events are also pivotal to how we hope to fund our projects.

— Our Mission

Founded in 2009, the associated has aligned its objectives to help and participate in community projects within the greater Brikama region. Although our current effort is primarily focused in the health sector, it is within the aim of this body which consist of purely volunteer donors to expand beyond the health care gamut.

We are focused on helping Brikama Health Center Facility by providing basic health care supplies, equipment and other services.

Why Brikama Health Center?
Brikama is arguably the largest town that links the major urban areas with rural Gambia. Not only is Brikama the major referral Health Center facility, it is also a work-in clinic for a myriad of villages and towns it harbors.

— Our Vision

Our vision is for Brikama Health Center to be a model for quality health care for Brikama and its surrounding population in The Gambia by the year 2022.

The facility is capable of providing the very much care it promises if equipped with adequate resources. Today the facility lacks basic health care supplies and equipment central to the treatment that its patient’s seek and a service that its staff wishes they could provide.

We vouch to help provide the Brikama Health Center and it’s staff with basic medical equipment and supplies. In doing so, not only do we empower the staff to provide proper prognosis and treatment but we also contribute to healthy community.
