M2D - AarSunuDemocratie

The Movement for the Defense of Democracy (M2D) has been working to help the victims of the demonstrations from Thursday 4 to Monday 8 March following the convocation and attestation of the deputy and opponent, Ousmane Sonko. The M2D mobilized more than 46 million to support the 590 injured, the numerous detainees and the families of the 14 dead. In this document released this Friday, March 26, 2021, the M2D details the expenditures already made in favor of the sons of the nation, victims of clashes between civilians and law enforcement.

-In the case of injuries:

“82 injured were recorded between Dakar, Guédiawaye, Pikine, Rufisque, Vélingara (Diaobé), Mbour and Bignona.
• In the Dakar region, 58 injured, including 20 serious cases, were identified and supported to the tune of 10,968,707 FCFA. We noted many cases of head trauma and limb amputations among these injured. Let us mention the cases of these two young people, one taken in charge at the hospital of Pikine and the other transferred from Ziguinchor to Thiès, and supported respectively to the tune of 1,044,700 FCFA and 1,373,000 FCFA.
• In Rufisque, 7 injured were supported to the tune of 545,000 FCFA.
• 38 injured treated in hospitals such as Grand Yoff, Le Dantec, Principal were supported to the tune of 3,662,235 FCFA.
• Two wounded in Vélingara, one transferred to Tambacounda and the other to the main hospital, were treated to the tune of 516,000 FCFA
• 15 serious injuries identified at Bignona were handled to the tune of 1,831,118 FCFA.
• In total, the M2D hired 17,441,060 to handle the 82 injured.

-Regarding inmates and assistance to families:
• 54 of them were supported for breakfast, lunch and dinner to the tune of FCFA 4,940,000.
• The support of the parents of the victims amounts to 6,500,000 FCFA, or 500,000 FCFA for each of the 13 families.
• An additional FCFA 500,000 was given to these families as condolences for a total of FCFA 12,500,000
• Expenses related to legal fees (fees and provisions) amount to 5,000,000 FCFA
These efforts, even important, made by the M2D, can neither compensate for the loss of lives torn from the prime of the age nor rebuild amputated bodies. However, they modestly express the deep sense of solidarity and compassion that all members of the movement have towards the families of the martyrs and the wounded.

The M2D will never let down these young Senegalese who have risen up to defend democracy and the rule of law.
That is why the M2D intends to mobilize more resources to provide even greater support to the grieving families and to help injured youth rebuild their lives with dignity.
In this perspective, after thanking the Venerable Khalife Serigne Mountakha Mbacké for his generous contribution, the M2D launches, from this Saturday, March 27, 2021, a national and international fundraising campaign called «Ndampaayu Askan Wi». The collection tools and contribution methods will be presented by the Commission in charge of finance. Senegalese from within the country and from the diaspora are invited to lend their support to this national action of solidarity.
A commission composed of dignitaries of integrity will be responsible for the management and equitable distribution of these funds to the victims.”
