Sanna Sambou, a 21-year-old man and a resident of Abuko Village is in need of assistance to go for overseas treatment.
According to a medical report issued from AfricMed Clinic, Sambou was seen and treated at the Royal Victoria Teaching Hospital (RVTH) in November 2008 diagnosed for Rheumatic Heart Disease and therefore recommended for overseas treatment.
