The Gambia Clubfoot Foundation, which helps people with clubfoot for free, worked with the Brikama District Hospital to improve the places where people get care. On some days of the week, a clinical room was shared because the hospital lacked a proper treatment location.

At the opening ceremony at Brikama District Hospital, Tolga Bermek, the ambassador of the Republic of Turkey to Banjul, Ule Bayar, who is in charge of TKA, and Ibo Camara, who is in charge of the Gambia Clubfoot Foundation, were all there, as were members of the local press and their families.

In his speech, Ambassador Tolga Bermek said that the TKA’s Banjul Office had done a lot of important work for the development of the Gambia since it opened. He said that the medical center had strengthened the friendship between Turkey and the Gambia.

Ule Bayar, who works as the TKA Coordinator in Banjul, says that clubfoot is one of the most common orthopaedic birth malformations. If it isn’t treated, it can lead to permanent disabilities. She claimed that youngsters with clubfoot were relieved to have a new rehabilitation facility.

As part of the initiative, the Gambia created the first treatment center for children with clubfoot and their families. Ibo Camara, director of the Gambia Clubfoot Foundation, praised TKA for this.
