A 32-year-old victim of armed robbery Mr. Patrick Sensee Folley, is appealing to philanthropists and individuals for assistance to enable him undergo surgery to remove a bullet from his right hand.
Victim Folley, who is a commercial driver, narrates that doctors have advised that he should go for surgery to remove the bullet to avoid his hand from being permanently deformed, but laments that he doesn’t have financial resources to underwrite the cost of surgery.
He made the appeal in an interview with The New Dawn in Kpeko, Grand Cape Mount County recently, disclosing that the incident transpired in September 2016 along the Grand Cape Mount County highway.
He further narrates that during the alleged robbery, his attackers made away with unspecific amount of United States dollars and goods belonging to business people in Monrovia, and no arrested has been made since in connection with the case.
According to him, he tried applying traditional medication on the affected hand, but this has not produced any fruitful results, noting that the hand leaks blood and pores.
He recalls that after the incident, some of his colleagues (drivers) provided assistance to enable him seeks medication, but they discontinued their support because of the current economy constraints in the country.
Mr. Folley, who cannot speak clearly due to what he describes as infection in the throat as a result of the incident, laments that he is the breadwinner for his six children whose mother died long ago.
