An 11-year-old class five pupil, Mamie Sam of Roman Catholic primary school, in Sierra Leone is currently calling on government and other humanitarian organisations to immediately come to her aid as she is not at peace at the moment.
Speaking to Awoko at her residence she explained that sometime last year she went on a fishing expedition together with her grandmother and other women in the town. After the exercise, she started experiencing her breast becoming large.
While taking bath together with the elders in the stream one of the women spoke about her breast saying her breast is becoming abnormal and it is not a good thing for her.
During the night hour, she said her breast scratched throughout the night giving her sleepless night and it’s kept projecting up to the current length as she continues to scratch.
The following morning when she went to school her class and school mates were provoking her and thereafter she stopped going to school almost a year now. She started her schooling at the Ansarul Primary School from classes 1 to 3 and then continued to Roman Catholic Primary School from classes 4 to 5.
She maintained that her parents have sought medical attention at Nixon Memorial hospital at Segbwema and several herbalists within the community but no improvement.
Since the start of her troubles, she is always at home sometimes either crying or sleeping. She described her breast as a big load on her adding she does not know why God put such punishment on her.
Her grandfather, Saidu, Moriba said this is the first time he is seeing such wonder in his lifetime, and that they are baffled as what to do to save her from this trouble. He revealed that several prayers and sacrifices have been done on her behalf but the problem still remains and they are asking for assistance.
