Rahama Haruna is the 19 year old Northern Nigerian girl born without limbs and majority of her body.
Her rare disability forces her to be carried around by a member of her family in a green plastic bowl. There is no known medical or scientific reason for her disability…it just happened. Pictures of the disabled teenager who has learnt to make the best out of her situation and stay happy went viral last week on social media after they were published online by photojournalist Maikatanga Sani.
Rahama lives in Kano state and makes a living by begging for alms with her 14 year old brother who carries the plastic bowl she sits in on his head as they both beg for alms.
With her picture gaining nationwide attention it caught the attention of Mavin princess Di’Ja who visited her on January 10 at her home town of Ladin Makole.
