The Girl Who Lives In A Bowl

A TEENAGE girl born without limbs lives her life in a plastic bowl. Rahma Haruna is a bright, happy girl, despite suffering from a mystery condition that stopped her arms and legs developing properly - leaving her practically
limbless and in constant pain. The 19-year-old, from Kano, Nigeria, was born a healthy baby but when she when
turned six months old her growth came to a sudden halt and she stopped hitting key development milestones. Rahma’s family do their best to provide her with a fulfilling life and transport her around the village in a plastic bowl. Doctors have been baffled by Rahma’s condition and some have even put it down to the teenager being struck down by jinns - a supernatural being in Islam mythology.
