PROFILE OF: SAMBOU JAITEH AND FAMILY

LOCATION: THE GAMBIA

FAMILY MAKE-UP: Sambou,  is a 17 year old youth who’s parents are both deceased and He takes care and tries to support his elderly grandmother, Sister, a younger brother and an evsambou jaiteh and family1en younger baby sister.  A Lion ate the youngest girl.

sambou school1I happen to come across this young man via messenger and the story seemed so outrageous that I couldn’t help but think that perhaps this was some sort of scam.  As I do with anyone that is requesting financial assistance or help of any type, I do an excessive search online and investigate through various means the claims made to substantiate or disprove any claims made.  I checked with his doctor, his school, his pastor, and a missionary that is over there that happened to know the pastor who knows the family. IT ALL CHECKED OUT.

 

As it turns out both parents over a span of fewer than ten years both passed away, (wasn’t able to determine why) and left all the children and the grandmother without any resources to support themselves.  They used the rental housing for as long as they could but, then the landlord kicked them out, and they ended up moving into a bushy area where they would have a little bit of shade and protection from the weather and other things.  As they were out there a lion, (almost extinct in that area but not totally extinct) got a hold of the baby sister, and ate it. They go from one place to another one situation to another, just trying to survive.  The pastor wants to support them but is himself poor and cannot support them. For a short time SAMBOU and his sister were in school but then it got too expensive and they had to pull out. They as of the last report have no housing, no food to speak of, no

medical care (the grandmother has had serious medical issues) and have been living off the money that we had been sending them. THIS IS A VERY DESPERATE CASE AND NEEDS URGENT HELP. PLEASE HELP US HELP THEM
