Nine year old Rodgers Charo was born a normal boy, but years after his birth he started to develop a combination of epilepsy and deformation on his limbs which affected his growth. Believing that he was cursed, his father abandoned them. The responsibility of taking care of him became too much on his mother who later died from stress, leaving him under the care of his grandmother to fight for his life. Rodgers requires specialised attention but his grandmother cannot be able to provide that due to poverty. His story represents that of 200 other children living with disabilities in Marafa community.
