Sea advance caused devastating and sudden damages along the coast of saint-louis and destroyed number of houses leading to rapid displacement of hundreds of families. Most exposed victims but invisible at first glance remain children traumatized by rapid move from houses to precarious tents with the sudden stripping of their parents' assets washed away by the sea, plunging them into a series of lack of vital needs related to nutrition, health care , hygiene, clothing, and education


The raised funds will permit the affected children to receive healthy and nutritive food, health insurance for free health care, hygiene products, clothes, blankets and mattresses; school supplies and fees to enable them to continue their studies despite the trauma and damages caused by this natural disaster. Social workers will also be available for children for psychological support, leisure and a gradual monitoring and evaluation of the impact of the assistance provided.

Long-Term Impact

This solution provided to the children will allow a good growth through nutritive alimentation, to benefit from good health, to palliate the risk of early school dropout by support for school supplies and fees, good mental health of the child through a psychological follow-up to treat the trauma suffered after these sudden and harsh events and also the purchase of decent clothes, diapers, hygiene kits to prevent very favorable opportunistic diseases in their new living conditions
