Meet Fatou

Fatou lives in The Gambia and lost her limb through diabetes. Thanks to our partnership with Banjul Mobility Centre, she was able to receive a prosthetic leg.

Her leg allows her to continue running her shop and she has gained enough confidence and knowledge to form a female amputee support group. They meet regularly to help each other through the trauma of limb loss and to share skills and income generation ideas.Their motto is "no stress".

It seems Fatou's main problem now is trying to get some peace and quiet, away from her excitable grandchildren.


Whenever I take my leg off the kids start playing with it, they think it’s a toy. I tip it and find so many things stored in there, even coins. Sometimes I am in my room not wanting to be disturbed but the children are running around and coming in and out. When they do this I take my leg off and wave my stump at them and then they run away scared and I am left in peace. It always works
