WEST GREENWICH â Six years ago, Safiatu Bah lived in the town of Kabala in Sierra Leone and she was dying.
Diagnosed with a hole in her heart and two leaky valves, she had little chance of survival because her African nation lacked the equipment and facilities to provide life-saving surgery.
Here in America, a world away, congregants of the North Kingstown United Methodist Church learned of her plight through members Daniel and Dorcas Kamanda, serving as missionaries in Sierra Leone.
