The girl from Nepal, who was born with a very rare disease, was forced to hide from the people and be an outcast, all nine years of his life, because the neighbors called her a monster and a witch.
My father talked about how his daughter avoided the society of other children, because she was born with a rare disease, because of which the left half of her face was covered with thick black hair. Superstitious villagers called Bhavana Tami, who is now nine years old, "a monster."
The reason was her rare disease. And because in their village, which is located in the district Dolagha, 345 kilometers from Kathmandu, Nepal, the girl almost did not walk.
The hair is not her face grew because of a rare disease that without timely treatment can become cancerous. However, the villagers explained that her parents could not. Without exception, all the villagers were convinced that a child with such a person, or a witch, or even a product of evil. Village council decided to isolate the family from society, after which they were evicted to the boundaries of the settlement.
Trying to protect his daughter, the father, whose name Kaluman did not allow her daughter to look in the mirror, but one day in the village was a journalist who photographed the girl, and then showed her the pictures, resulting in an eight-year child has experienced a terrible disgust, fear and shock.
Bhavana recently underwent plastic surgery that gives hope to her and her father that they will again be able to return to normal life. The first operation was carried out in Kathmandu with the support of Help for children in Nepal last year.
A year later, the girl made a second operation, which resulted in the hair out of her face had been completely removed. However, the girl has to be at least one operation that surgeons will conduct after Bhavan turns 14 years old.
After the girl had the surgery, the villagers took her back and her father, and she is now playing with the other children. Bhavani life is changing every day since its first operation. Currently, she is attending school and leading the same life as all the children in her village.
