Malawian Lady seeks assistance after spending 30 years lying down in her mother’s home

Ester Chamkhumbira, 30, from Mkukula village T/A Mkukula from Dowa district, Malawi is among those few survivors who has lived her whole life with a medical condition resulted from preterm

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-About one billion (15 percentage) of the world population experience some form of disability and disability is estimated to be higher in developing countries.

According to World Health Organisation (WHO), an estimated 15 million babies are born premature yearly with complications that mostly lead to death.

However, Ester Chamkhumbira, 30, from Mkukula village T/A Mkukula from Dowa district, Malawi is among those few survivors who has lived her whole life with a medical condition resulted from preterm.

Born on March 17, 1990, Ester’s medical condition has rendered her unable to move, stand and perform other basic activities like every other person.

Ester’s father who was a security guard was killed in 1991, a year after Ester’s birth leaving the mother to look after her disabled child while depending on small scale farming.

Due to her old age, Ester’s mother hasn’t been able to make enough money to look after the home which mostly results in Ester sometimes sleeping on empty stomach.

It is reported that due to her condition, Ester’s mother has been locking her daughter inside her home every time she was going out to protect her safe from the outside world.

Meanwhile, well-wishers and organisations that looks after the disabled have been asked to assist with a wheel chair that will enable Ester to freely move outside her mothers home where she has lived lying on the mat her whole life.

Others who are willing to provide any other form of help have also been urged to step in and render a hand by contacting her brother ( 0997726568) who will provide more details on Ester’s condition and all the needed help to ease Ester’s life so she can live her life like any other person.
