Gambia: Middle Aged Woman Seeks Assistance for Overseas Treatment

Sutay Touray, 36 year old woman, is suffering from severe elephantiasis which restricts her movement.

Madam Sutay Touray said she has been suffering from this sickness since the year 2005. "This disease attacked me when I went to attend the African Union Summit,

since then it has been worsening continually but this time around it is reached the worse level", Said Sutay Touray, the victim of Elephantiasis . "I fall down last week and since then I could not walk until now", Said Sutay.

Madam Touray, a resident of Serrekunda said she has gone to both RVTH and MRC but her situation has not improved and her leg continues to swell. The patient said her leg gets enlarged each day and this is why she is appealing to any good Samaritan who can help her to facilitate her treatment overseas.

The patient who was in tears while explaining her ordeal said, it is more than a month now since she last walked.

"I cannot even move by myself because my leg has enlarged to an extent that I cannot even lift it up", Explained Sutay, a patient woman who is afflicted with elephantiasis.

She said she and her family have no means to foot her bill for overseas treatment and that is why she is appealing to any good individual to help her in her treatment because her situation cannot be taken care of in the Gambia.

Any Samaritan who wishes to give a helping hand to Sutay Touray can contact her on telephone No. 7145611.
