Gambian Families


Here is Samba with his 4 children and their cousins. They are proudly presenting their new clothes which Ida Clinkx gave to them at one of her recent visits there.



Samba eating dinner with his children (small Jelle, small Fatou and..?) on the traditional African way. It is very normal in The Gambia that the whole family eats rice with vegetables (sometimes also with chicken or fish) out of one bowl... just with their fingers only. There are also no exceptions made when they have guests. They usually get invited to share this meal with them... eating in the same way.




Here is Ida Clinckx again with the children...









coming to and going from Samba's family is always very emotional...






Two more pics of Samba's sister new house...
