He was a Red Cross volunteer and then also a youth activist.

Helping to Protect Sea Turtles
Smile For Life has a volunteer network throughout the southern coastal area of The Gambia. These volunteers assist our conservation efforts out of an appreciation for nature and desire to protect sea turtles and marine life for future generations. We hope to be able to offer the most committed volunteers some form of permanent livelihood opportunity within the organisation in the future.
