Liberia: One Year Old Child With Heart Problem Needs Help

The mother of a one year old Augustine Tamba is making an SOS call to well-meaning Liberians to help save her son's life.

Madam Beatrice Tamba said her son was diagnosed with a heart condition after birth and that her son always suffers from constant fever and cold and also cries a lot. She said due to this pathetic condition of her son, she then took him to Mawah Clinic in Vai Town for treatment and he was diagnosed.

She complained that her son doesn't sleep at night due to the severe pain he continues to experience and that he is reducing every day. According to her, she was advised by the doctor to take her son for a test called Echo Cardiograph in Ghana to confirm his reports.

Madam Tamba who was in tears explaining said the surgery cannot be done anywhere in Africa but rather abroad. Madam Tamba said she cannot afford the money to take her son to Ghana or abroad, and that she cannot sit and watch her son die either.

Meanwhile, the mother of little Augustine Tamba is calling on humanitarian organizations, the government of Liberia and well-meaning Liberians to help save the life of her dying son. Madam Tamba can be reached at this number: 0886-650163 or you can call 0886-934706.
