Prosthetic arms for Seukep

My name is Paul, a scientist living in Burlington, MA, USA. My attention was brought to the story of Seukep who lives in Cameroon, West Africa.  While working on October 2, 2020, Seukep had an accident and was burned by a high voltage power line which caused him to lose both of his arms.  Watch Seukep's story in the video above (in French/will be updated with English subtitles soon).

I started this gofundme campaign to raise money for for Seukep to acquire prosthetic arms  in Cameroon to enable him to function normally, and also work to provide for his wife and baby daughter.

Medical facilities and health insurance are limited in Cameroon and most patients have to bear the out-of-pocket costs. 
Depending on the type of prosthetic arm and the functionality desired, a full functioning prosthetic arm  can cost between $3000 and $100,000 (https://health.costhelper.com/prosthetic-arms.html )
According to Seukep, he needs about 12,000,000 CFA Francs for two prosthetic arms in Cameroon, which convert to about $23,000.

The additional money will be used to cover Gofundme charges and secure money transfer costs to Cameroon. 

Seukep will receive all the donations. 

Seeking to raise all that money by the end of April 2021.  
Your contribution is greatly appreciated. Kindly share with your contacts/friends and network on your social media platforms. Twitter: #Seukep 

Kind regards,
Paul
(on behalf of Seukep)
