Habiba Abukar Ibrahim, aged five, has a brain condition that cannot be treated locally.
The family lives in Amin village, 5kms north of Belet Hawo, Gedo Region.
“My daughter has been in this condition since a baby, there is nowhere I haven’t taken her to medication. The doctors who’ve seen her say she has water in the cranium. She is in constant pain and I have to stay holding her all the time. I am therefore unable to work,” Faduma Isman, the girl’s mother, said.
Local doctors say they do not have the medical means to treat the child. Faduma is appealing for outside help.
