A twenty-five year old Dawda Jarjo a native of Marakissa village is once again seeking support from philanthropists and organisations for an overseas treatment.

According to a medical report dated 14th January 2009 issued by the Royal Victoria Teaching Hospital (RVTH) and signed by Dr. Tamsir Mbowe, Director General of The Presidential Treatment Programme and Chief Medical Director of RVTH, Dawda needs to undergo surgical treatment overseas.

The report revealed that Dawda is with a history of a fall a long time ago from a palm tree. He had some pain in the right hip some time later; the following years he developed a serious pain in the right hip in 2004.

Presently, the medical board report added, Dawda complains severer pain on the right hip with difficulty to walk, and stand for a long time.

"He needs surgical treatment with a prosthesis which cannot be done here, because of lack of instrument" says the report.

Meanwhile, since then Dawda made several efforts to solicit support to address his health problems but these were unsuccessful.

He went further to contact an Orthopaedic Surgeon Consultant in the United Kingdom who states that the patient needs a hip replacement. After initial enquires the consultant revealed that the total cost for his treatment would be thirteen thousand, five hundred pounds.

When he secured the necessary funds, the treatment should be done at the BMI the EsperanceHospital in UK.

Dawda is also a qualified teacher at JeshwangLowerBasicSchool. He appealed to the general public for support.
Meanwhile those who may wish to support him can contact 00220 4497441.
