Elizabeth's Story...

ElizabethMy name is Elizabeth Nahamya. I have one brother called Obed Nokwe.  In my family, my father has died and my brother and mother are also disabled. Before the death of my father, he worked in people’s gardens to secure us some food.

When he died, we became a problem to people around us. They called us names and we were referred to as a cursed family. Being disabled is a big problem.  You are never considered a human being. 

My mother had to start looking for jobs but found heavy work difficult because of her disability.  Instead, I used to work on her behalf. However, the more I grow, the more my disability worsened and in time I could not perform heavy work either.  We were chased out of our home and had nowhere to live.  My mother started baking and selling pancakes but continually we had to move from house to house, trying to find somewhere to sleep.
