Musa lives in Rindebe IDP settlement. He fell from the bed when he was a year old, he cried for days but the parents didn't know the fall had damaged his leg. They kept giving him local herbs to calm his temperature. About 5 years ago, Boko Haram insurgent invaded his community, Maffa in Borno State and in the fracas, his father was killed. Musa's mother returned to her family leaving Musa and his brother with the paternal grandparents.
Tired of living at the IDP camp in Maiduguri, Musa's grandparents relocated to Rindebe settlement, Bauchi State to rebuild their lives. Musa's wish is to walk without the sticks, which ActionAid is helping him to realise. He was recently taken to the hospital for his first diagnosis which confirmed the damage on his leg could be reversed. We are supporting tens of children like Musa. You can help us reach more.
