Following consultations with the TRRC, the Victim Participation Support Fund was established by the United Nations Peace building Fund, the UNDP and OHCHR through the Project “Support the capacity of the Government and national stakeholders to establish credible transitional justice processes and mechanisms that promote reconciliation and sustainable peace in The Gambia” (TJHR Project).The purpose of the Fund is to increase the participation of TRRC victims, their family members, witnesses and informants in TRRC processes, particularly statement-taking, investigations and hearings (in-camera and public), by remedying their immediate, basic, mobility, medical and protection needs.
The TRRC has distributed food items such as rice, cooking oil and onions to sixty-six victims across the country. Fifteen of the beneficiaries are victims of sexual and gender based violence funded by the Irish government through the UN peace building fund.
Welfare includes
- Non-recurrent costs such as the procurement of items, inter alia, medical aids (glasses, hearing aids, walking sticks, wheelchairs, and other mobility aids)
- Provision of urgent, basic medical interventions, such as the cost of X-rays, MRI, CT-scans, and laboratory analysis,
- Provision of medication and payment of medical bills following an urgent, basic medical intervention (including short-term hospitalization)
- Provision of protective services for informants, victims, and witnesses
- Other types of support in line with the spirit of the Policy, deemed as reasonable and necessary to encourage victims to participate in TRRC processes


Victims, as defined under Section 2 of the TRRC Act, may apply for welfare support. Informants and witnesses may also apply for welfare support but only in relation to their protection.
To apply contact the following numbers: 7704988 0r 5086693
