A 27 year-old man, William Flomo, is appealing to humanitarian organizations and individuals of goodwill to come to his immediate aid to enable him seek medical treatment. Mr. Flomo who walked into the offices of The INQUIRER yesterday lamented that he has been suffering from a strange growth on his jaw, something doctors are yet to identify. According to Flomo who appeared very sorrowful while narrating his ordeal, his father is a disabled person and has been the only person taking care of him prior to the strange growth.
Flomo said the growth developed two years ago in the form of toothache but later expanded thus seeking medical attention to several clinics in Gbapolu County where he hails from. “Later I was brought to the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital where doctors tested me and told me that I should be taken to Tapita at the Jackson F. Doe Memorial Hospital in Nimba County or preferably in the sisterly Republic of Ghana,” Flomo narrated.
Mr. Flomo who came down from Gbapolu yesterday to appeal for assistance said he is now finding it difficult to eat as the mysterious growth is now covering his mouth and extending to his ears.
Meanwhile, Flomo is sending an SOS to humanitarian organizations, foreign nationals including the United States Ambassador, Debora Malac, the newly accredited Chinese Ambassador to Liberia, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Finance Minister, Amara Konneh, Senate Pro-tempore, Gbezohngar Findley, Rep. Edwin Snowe and others to assist him seek medical treatment abroad or at the Tapita Hospital.
He is also appealing to the Lebanese Community, the Indian Community through its Honorary Consul General to Liberia, Mr. Upjit Singh Sachdeva, the Liberia Council of Churches, the Muslim Community, and other philanthropists in and out of the country to help save his life.
