Jan 7, 2009, 6:34 AM | Article By: Binta Fatty

The family of Amie Tambedou of Manduarr are seeking the assistance of donors and philanthropists to help pay for treatment overseas. Amie is 10 years old and presented at the cardiac clinic of the Royal Victoria Teaching Hospital on the 11thof last month. She has a congenital cardiopathy and no further treatment is available to her in The Gambia.

Her echocardiography states that she has a large ventricular septal defect, hypertrophy of the left ventricle and over rounding of the aortic artery roots. The examining doctor states in a report seen by The Point that her diagnosis is tetrlogy of fallop. The Paediatrician Dr. Juan Carlos Otero in that report states, "I will be very grateful if you take this patient under your care for further management and treatment because it is not possible in The Gambia."

Ablie Tembedou, the father of Amie, is seeking help from NGO's, philanthropists, government and well wishers to help him secure treatment for his daughter. He can be contacted on the following numbers 9947519, 7039348 or 7335281.
