A 25-year-old man is seeking assistance from philanthropists, organisations, institutions and individuals to help him ease his mobility constraints by donating to him a wheelchair.

Momodou Marly Jallow, a Guinean and resident of Bundung, is without a wheelchair for months a problem he has been grappling with over the years.

According to his father, Momodou Jallow is the only child he has but his inability to move has posed a big burden on the family.

“I am appealing to people and institutions to help my son with a wheelchair,” Mr Jallow said. “I am an unemployed poor man who cannot afford to buy a wheelchair for my child.”

Meanwhile, anyone interested in assisting the young Momodou can call the family on 00220 -3471343 or 00220 - 6277556.
