Lamin and the need for Little Leg Donations

Sue PownallLittle Legs

Lamin Bojang is a 5 year old boy who, like any other 5 year old, enjoys going to school and playing with his friends. However, in June this year Lamin was involved in a car accident which necessitated having his left leg amputated. Thanks to a donation of a leg from a child amputee in the UK which was shipped to The Gambia by Legs4Africa, Lamin was soon fitted with a new leg. This is not the end of his story though. Children outgrow their artificial legs very quickly and they need to be replaced approximately every six months. This is why the Little Legs Project is so important. We are constantly in need of replacement legs for little people so that they can continue with school and playing with their friends.
