Disability Spinal deformity; burn scarring
Aida is a 12-year-old girl, she is in Standard 3 at Mulunguzi Primary School. Aida stays with her mother and stepfather. Aida’s biological father died when she was 4 years old.
Aida has a tumor on her back that started when she was young and continued to grow. In 2016, she had an accident. She was burnt on her stomach and her thighs were stuck together. Her mother was not around when this happened. Her relatives abandoned her and did not assist her to go to the hospital. Some good samaritans assisted them to go to the hospital, but they could not continue with the follow-ups at the hospital which has made the situation worse.
Aida struggles in walking especially long distance and she feels pain when doing household chores because of the tumor and wounds she has.
