Jigiya, Our New Mali Friends

5- Mamadou Coulibaly
Birth Date :  11/10/1971
Birth place:   Markala

I attended school up to the 9th form. At the 7th form I got malaria. It was confirmed in the hospital that I got Malaria. My parents bought the prescription containing injection (6 Quinimax  of injection.) At the end of the treatment, my left leg couldn’t support me. So the handicap attacked my left leg. I kept going to school up to the 9th form. I had to leave school because I walked hardly. Presently I walk with a long stick. I am a tailor. I can sew clothes of all sorts. I wish I had a larger workshop and some good machines to teach sewing to many youngsters. I’ve got 8 brothers. I am married.
