Helping Djiba Help Guinea, Africa

Djiba Camara has had a very successful life here and in Europe as a professional soccer player and coach, but the suffering and starvation in his former home country of Guinea in West Africa is driving him to give back.  

In 2013 Djiba, a resident of Coquitlam and teacher in Langley, initiated and completed his first “Drop Off For Africa” project—collecting donated supplies, shipping them to Guinea, and overseeing their distribution (click here for the video).  Few international charities work in Guinea because it is so difficult and dangerous.  But the needs are so great.  So when Djiba returned from that trip in 2013 he was very motivated to do more to help.  

However, shortly after he returned, he was diagnosed with liver cancer hindering his efforts for a follow up project.  Yet even after numerous surgeries and ongoing chemotherapy he remains committed to helping the people of Guinea.    

With the help of friends from the school, church, and community he has collected another shipment of strategically selected supplies (e.g. tools, books, computers, sports equipment).  He recently sold his apartment so he could buy a five tonne truck to hold all the supplies which he is now trying to ship as a whole unit to Guinea.

He is asking for help to raise the $25,000 needed for shipping & clearing customs in Guinea.  Eagle Ridge Bible Fellowship is holding a Block Party & Garage Sale on Saturday, September 24 from 10am - 1pm with all proceeds going to Djiba's project.  Monetary donations may be made through Eagle Ridge Bible Fellowship by clicking HERE.  (Please earmark your donations "Guinea Project")  

Thank you for helping Djiba to change the world in Guinea.
