Aidez-nous à sauver Mamadou SARR, un mauritanien âgé de 44 ans !

Help us save Mamadou SARR, a 44-year-old Mauritanian!

Mamadou SARR deserves your support in order to benefit from the care he urgently needs! 

Mamadou SARR, 44 years old, developed an illness which started with a swollen foot with blisters on the skin. Despite traditional treatments and consultations with marabouts, his condition only worsened. 

After an operation in Wouro Soogui, Senegal, the skin around the wound did not heal and pus continued to leak from his leg. He has always worked hard, but now finds himself without resources, supported only by his equally needy sister.

It is important to note that healthcare is not free in Mauritania, adding a financial burden to its already precarious situation.

🌟🏥 L’ASPT et la communauté de Tékane unies pour un Centre Hospitalier Brillant 🏥🌟

🌟🏥 ASPT and the community of Tékane united for a Brilliant Hospital Center 🏥🌟

Thank you for your outpouring of solidarity!

The construction of the Tékane health center is a laudable and essential initiative for the well-being of the community. The fact that the high school, local youth and the community pharmacy responded enthusiastically to the call from the ASPT association of Tékane, demonstrates a strong spirit of solidarity and commitment to the common good.

The cleaning of the Tékane hospital center is an important step in improving local health conditions. This not only helps provide a healthier environment for patients and medical staff, but also builds community trust in the healthcare system.

By working hand in hand, these local actors not only accomplished a concrete task, but they also strengthened community ties. These initiatives promote a sense of belonging and collective responsibility for the health and well-being of all.

#ASPT #Solidarity #Commitment #Chospital Center 🌟

The Association of Extracurricular Activities of Tékane (ASPT), as a mobilizing organization, also deserves to be saluted for its role in coordinating these efforts. Their ability to bring together different actors to work together towards a common goal is a positive example of what solidarity can achieve.

Hopefully these supportive actions will inspire other communities to undertake similar initiatives to improve local living and health conditions.
