We are now in our 3rd year of supporting Serray the Health Assistant at Penyem Village Health Centre.
Great News! Today DJB Labcare contributed their annual £500 to enable us to complete the training of Penyem Trainee Nurse, Seray. This is the third year they have supported us with this project. (actually this year's payment was to be £350 topped up by £150 by NTF, but they offered the whole amount).
This Christmas DJB is supporting the "Cats Foundation" who are working towards a cure and support families of children with Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff, instead of sending individual christmas cards to our customers we will be donating to this wonderful charity.
Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff disease are genetic diseases which are terminal illnesses in children. Waste products build up in their brain and over period of time the children lose their ability to eat, walk, crawl, see, hear and move. They become completely dependent on their parents and many lose their fight against Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff disease by the age of five.

DJB would like to welcome the new Health Assistant at Penyem Village Health Centre. The Assistant Nurse is Serray Kujabie, she is a 35 year local woman and has four children of her own. Serray spends two days a week away from the village on ‘Day Release Training’ at Remis Health Centre, Dasilameh. This is a modern ‘Cottage Hospital’ style of Health Centre which provides the next level of health care. We wish Serray the very best of luck with her training.
Brand New Machine Sorvall ST 8 has been released!

DJB Labcare Ltd has pledged financial support on an ongoing basis to the Northampton Trustee Fund (NTF) for the training and employment of a Health Assistant in Penyem Village Health Centre. The Village Health Centre has been renovated and equipped, but it can't be run without staff! Final details of the training will be discussed when Andy and Anne visit Penyem in February, but the successful applicant will be a school leaver, who has benefited from the student sponsorship programme.
The NTF was founded in 2005 after Andy and Anne Butler went on holiday to The Gambia and were inspired by a local tour guide, Ten. Fundraising then began for an ambulance for the village and it all went from there! Education has been the main project, getting the school equipped with stationary and books, and starting the Child Sponsership Programme.
