We thank God for the current course of activities. Patients are starting to come in droves. The doctors are on the job. We thank God and thank you. May God help us to help ourselves. And those who are to thank, first, are our parents who had the intelligence to send us to school.

Now it's our turn to help. Our thanks go particularly to our dad, former director of the Tékane school, the late Abdoul Ciré KANE who was the major player in the education of young people in this village. Only God can pay for it.
