Stranded in Gambia!

***THIS FUNDRAISER HAS NOW ENDED - Thank you all for your donations and shares - Pauline and her family are  now home***

Ok, so my friend Pauline Pearce (AKA 'The Hackney Heroine' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pauline_Pearce) is stuck in Gambia with her sick father (who is almost out of heart medication) and daughter Serena. Not only them, but around 200 other people. The Government is doing absolutely nothing at all to help. They are all out of money, food and almost accommodation, and have no way of getting back. Their already paid-for flights were cancelled, she even had to borrow the cash for phone credit to make the live video below.
Not only are they in desperate need of money, they need the video below to get shared so it gets back to the powers that be. If enough people scream about this, they will get off their privileged asses and actually do something to bring these people home. NO people deserves to be left stranded without food or medication. It's absolutely despicable how the Government are telling us all here that people have been helped to get back home, when in reality it's all a lie, in this case.
 
Please give what you can so at least they can get some accommodation, food and hopefully medication for the duration.

There has been NO HELP and no contact from the the Government at all, at home or the Embassy. They have all been left and let down by Boris Johnson. Let's at least make sure these people can eat!
