Ebrima Beyai, a 23-year-old man who was diagnosed two years ago of open femoral and patella fracture, is seeking assistance in order to travel for overseas medical treatment in Germany.
Ebrima was admitted at the EFSTH in 2016 and went on to spend nine months there, however, doctors said his condition did not improve.
He was then referred to a hospital in Dakar and spent another seven months without any marked improvements.

Doctors recommended overseas treatment for him in Germany.
The 23-year-old’s medical report indicated that his wound was not improving and still infected, thus the idea of removing internal fixation was done and later an external fixation was applied.
“He is currently on daily dressing, receiving intravenous medications, subcutaneous heparin and physiotherapy.

“He has no history of trauma, no abdominal pain, no difficulty in breathing or urinary symptoms.”
A desperate Mr Beyai, walked into the offices of The Standard with crouches in his hands.
He sadly said: “I am soliciting for help from the general public, philanthropists and government especially the president and the First Lady to assist me to go the treatment. I have been suffering for two years now with sleepless nights because of pain am going through.”
Anyone willing to help young Beyai could reach him on: 7029303.
