Relief for the bereaved after the ferry disaster in Senegal

18/11/2002 - More than a thousand people died when a ferry capsized off the coast of Gambia at the end of September. Hundreds of families, mainly from the Senegalese coastal town of Ziguinchor, lost parents, children and relatives in the disaster. SOS Children's Villages Senegal is launching emergency relief measures to support families and orphans in need.
