Moribah Tommy

Moribah Tommy, a crippled, hard-working blacksmith, was one of the many disabled persons who were on the waiting list for a mobility cart.  In 2018 and early 2019, Africa Surgery had distributed 60 mobility carts donated by Mobility World Wide (mobilityworldwide.org) to victims of polio and other disabled persons. 

Shortly after receiving his mobility cart, Moribah went back to work, to forge some farm implements at the village blacksmith shop.

In October 2019 Africa Surgery sent another container to Sierra Leone.  It included 80 more mobility carts, and Moribah finally received the cart that allows him to move around his village (Matru-Jong) with ease and dignity.
