The Gambian Experience

"The Gambian Experience" is a short-documentation about the german doctor Dr. Kristin Menzel and the experience she made in The Gambia, since she traveled the first time in 2005 till the opening of the Tallinding Children-Health-Center in this september 2011. She told me, how she went the first time to the Lamin-Health-Center, how the association "GambiaGesundheitsHilfe e.V" in Brandenburg an der Havel came to life and what are their motives to help in the smallest and neediest country in Africa. It was possible to build a children's health center in Tallinding (a slum with about 55.000 inhabitants, without any medical care), by donations from businesses in Brandenburg and their population.
