A teenage miss born without limbs lives her life in a plastic bowl because of a arcane condition that stopped her arms and legs developing properly has tragically declined on Christmas Day.
Rahma Haruna was born almost limbless and in constant affliction.
The 19-year-old, from Kano, Nigeria, appeared to be a healthy baby but at six months old her ex nsion came to a sudden halt and she stopped hitting key development milestones.
Her baby, Fadi, said: “From six months when she learnt how to sit that was when it opened. She didn’t learn how to crawl.
“She started with a fever and that was it. Then thirst ins.
Then her body rts like hands and legs. She cannot use any if the hunger strikes.”
Rahma’s blood did their best to provide her with a fulfilling life and transport her encom ssing the village in a plastic bowl.
Speaking earlier this year, Rahma communicated: “They help me a lot. How do they? They give me anything I need.”
She was mainly close to her 10-year-old brother Fahad, who doted on his older sister.
Fahad conjectured: “I help her in many ways. Bathing her is another thing I do. And taking her out dull.
“I feel happy whenever I see people helping her. I like taking to our correspondents. She feels happy when we visit them.”
The cause of Rahma’s hidden condition remains unknown, despite her family working hard to shut a diagnosis.
Doctors were left baffled by Rahma’s condition and some retaliate put it down to the teenager being struck down by a jinn – a supernatural being in Islamic mythology.
Rahma’s genus hoped to get the attention of a charity or medical specialist who could help with the teen’s ordinary in.
Rahma got some generous gifts after being featured in the local hold close such as a donation of a wheelchair – and they made a big difference to her life.
And teeth of the daily challenges Rahma faces, the brave teenager is full of desire for her future and dreams of opening her own shop.
She said: “I thank God in everything I do.
“I wish for to start a business. A grocery store and anything people buy, that is what I hunger for.”
