Ramatoulie Jobe, a 41 year old widow residing in Tallinding Kunjang in the Kanifing Municipality, recently visited the Foroyaa Office at Churchill Town in tears asking for how she could be helped to get assistance to care of her 7 young children. She explained that her husband died in 2009 leaving her unemployed and with seven 7 'mouths' (dependents) to single handedly feed, clothe, house, train and educate.
Ramatoulie explained that her husband passed away in 2009 and that since then she has been depending on the support of relatives and friends for the maintenance of her young family. She said times are getting more difficult for her to feed the family, pay house rent, support the education of the children and attend to other basic needs.
She said her eldest child is in presently doing very well in Grade 12 and is lucky to have a scholarship, but the other 6 are finding it difficult to continue with their schooling because of the means to pay for their school fees, book bills, study fees etc.
Ramatoulie is therefore appealing for support from any Good Samaritan or philanthropic organization to come to her aid to support the education of her children.
She can be contacted on the following numbers: 7389178, 7884533 or 6783006 or the Foroyaa office at: 4393177
