About Demam

Demam is an energetic 8-year-old girl, and she really enjoys playing with her friends, but sometimes, her feet get in the way of that. She has had clubfeet since birth, and a couple of years ago, she moved to a place called Gonder to live with her aunt in order to get closer to treatment and to an education. Demam has 2 brothers and 2 sisters and her aunt sells goods in a small market. When she and her aunt heard about CURE from another hospital, they traveled for 3 days by bus to get here. The one thing that Demam loves more than anything is running, and the thought of being able to do that without pain or difficulty is too wonderful to wrap her mind around. She always gets sad and cries, because kids at school call her "shiba" which means "crippled"...well, we're ready to change that for good.
