VERY GOOD NEWS

From the KASSUMAY FOUNDATION we want to wish you a good start to the year that lasts the twelve months, where together we can put our seeds for a better present.

Despite all the news that comes to us from everywhere that makes us shiver and that does not generate much hope, we want to start this first block of the year with positive news, which allows us to glimpse a little light after dark.

Perhaps not everyone is aware that since March 2022, (also coinciding with the proximity of dates with the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine), the armed conflict that leads in one way or another latent to the Casamance has been reactivated.

As is well known, the one who always loses in these cases is the civilian population that sees their lives cut short overnight. The media coverage of this issue has been minimal, if not zero, overshadowed by the coincidence with the terrible situation in Ukraine.

The events, as usually happens in these cases, caused the departure of the populations looking for a space where their safety could be guaranteed. A large part of the inhabitants of the affected area fled to neighboring Gambia. And this area is also where we have carried out many of the projects implemented by the KASSUMAY FOUNDATION with our counterpart in the field, the Association CPAS.

These projects have not been exempt from the violence generated between the Senegalese army and rebel groups, which have damaged much of the work done, whether in women's vegetable gardens, health centers, schools or maternity wards.

We do not yet know the exact extent of the damage caused, and we will do our best to restore the proper functioning of infrastructure and orchards as soon as we have an accurate assessment of such damage.

The generosity of our collaborators, partners and supporters will make it possible as always when we come to fruition. But after this not at all flattering introduction, we bring you the good news:

Since last December we have information that confirms the return of displaced populations to their localities. We rejoice and celebrate that people who were forced to leave their homes can get their lives back where they belong by right and choice.

Empty villages are once again the focus where life flows, places where days have meaning and where a new sunrise is expected every day. Surely with added difficulties after forced displacement. However, we rely on people's strength to build (and rebuild if necessary) their present.

From the KASSUMAY FOUNDATION we start the year with this crack of light and with our eyes set on those who often have their voices silenced, but although the cry is deaf, it is still a cry and if you want it is heard.
