Aminata, now age 27, suffered from a tuberculosis infection of her spine when she was a child. Africa Surgery funded complete anti-TB treatment for her in 2009. By 2013 her TB had cleared up and her spine fused. Aminata still suffers from a severe spinal deformity that drastically reduces her height, but the condition does not slow her down. Last year Aminata completed a two-year course in Tailoring at our Freetown base. She will be a great help to her two disabled housemates, one of whom has also completed our Skills-Training-in-Tailoring course.
