Jigiya, Our New Mali Friends

6- Bintou Bah

Birth date : 1973
Birth place: Markala
 
 I got my sickness when I was 7. One night I got fever, I told it to my mother. My mother took me to bed. When I woke up in the morning I noticed that my left leg was inactive. I was taken to the hospital. Then the doctors confirmed it was polio. I stayed home doing nothing many years ago. When I heard about Jigiya I joined The Association. Thanks to Jigiya I discovered many things and I have improved my living standard. I got Affection kindness with people of Jigiya. I have realised also that staying a side is a cause of engraving the sickness. Since I got closed to Jigiya I feel now at ease.
