Children leaving with disability in many parts of Kenya are the most unlucky lot, parents either hide them in their homes not to see anyone, or they are abandoned at children homes. Living with disability according to most parents is a curse. I did this story in Migori County, where the kids are abandoned by parents at a children's home.
In some places in Africa, stigmatization against specific diseases and conditions is still high, HIV/Aids, Cancer, Albinism among others are still viewed as curses. This story done in Kiswahili from the Lake Basin region of Homa Bay, is of a girl (sadly she passed on), who was abandoned because she had breast cancer, people viewed as a cursed child.
