This is definitely the most important thing I’ve ever written. Please signal boost / reblog, and help if you can, this woman’s life is in danger. I work for the organization handling her case and I can vouch for its legitimacy.
I am writing today with a heavy heart, and a call to action. A woman contacted us at Khadarlis only a few days ago, informing us of a desperate need for assistance. A young Sierra Leonean woman named Fatama has been suffering from an oral infection for a heartbreakingly long time. She had a tooth extraction in March of 2012, and a few days later, she began to experience swelling in her jaw. A ground team in Sierra Leone confirmed this case and sent us photographs as evidence of its legitimacy. Fatama has had surgery, antibiotics and more, but has responded to none of the treatments. She is now experiencing a burning in her throat, and can barely eat. No hospital or clinic has been able to treat her with any success.
This beautiful young woman is 17 years old, an accomplished high school student in Freetown. Khadarlis is trying to raise money to send her to a hospital that can properly treat her. Please, if you can help, even a small amount, even a few dollars, it will go a long way to helping Fatama get treatment that will save her life.

I have attached a photo below from just a few days ago, but please be wary, the pictures are simply heartbreaking, and very difficult to look at. Please, consider putting your support behind this important case. Every penny is significant, and each bit goes another step towards saving this young woman’s life.
