Sometimes life is what you make it, but most of the times it is life that makes us the people we are, and it’s why we do most of the things we do.
This is why we must not judge people, since we can never tell what they have been through.
Today we bring you a story of two boys who people say that they are slowly turning into trees.
He is called Abraham.
He says that he found himself this way, which means that this is how he was born.
This is his elder brother.
He is big now and he has a family of his own.
They never got treatment at all because their mother died when they were still young.
Their father is always drunk and having affairs with other women, which means that he hardly helps their father cared less about these children.
He never wanted to talk about their treatment, and when his big brother got married, they started living on their own.
Abraham also left his father’s house at a young age and started living with his brother.
Well, he goes to a certain local school in the society, but they call him annoying and embarrassing names like crocodile, tree, frog and a lot more.
His brother advises him to ignore all that they keep saying about him, because they surely cannot change anything about it.
They were a happy family before all this happened.
They had both parents, just like other usual children.
Their mother cared a lot about them, but their father was totally different.
He was a man that had a lot of women in his life and cared less about his family when he was born, his skin was not normal at all.
It was weird, and he later learned how to live with it, because this was the only option he heard.
Their mother later got pregnant again and gave birth to Abraham.
His condition was now worse.
It was obvious that they had to do something about it.
They were poor and could hardly afford to go to any medical hospital to get treatment, and however much they wanted to get medicine for this, they had to stay home and wait until their mother came up with something to do about this.
One day their mother slept and never woke up again.
She died, and this was something that they did not see coming.
They totally lost even the little hope they had about getting treatment.
Now they were on their own at their home.
It is unbelievable, but these children had to find food for themselves.
They lived like this for a very long time until he finally grew up and started thinking about being independent and living on his own.
He had to find a wife so as to get married, but this was not as easy as it sounds.
Obviously, no girl ever wanted to talk to him because of the way he appeared.
They all rejected him at first sight, and finding one that accepted him for who he is was something that wasn’t simple at all.
He finally found a girl that loved him despite his skin disorder, and that is how he managed to leave his father’s house and decided to go and start a life on his own.
His brother could not also afford to live in this house for a very long time, so he also decided to leave his father’s house.
Abraham moved to his brother’s house, and this is where he lives now.
His brother now makes local bricks for a living.
These are bricks that are made out of mud and they are locally used to build houses in this village.
Houses that are built with these bricks are not strong enough, which means that they are cheap, making the bricks that he makes a lot cheaper, and he hardly gets half a dollar after an entire day of working.
And this is also another problem that they face.
Abraham now started going to school.
This life has not been easy at all for him because a lot of children isolate him from their friends.
They hardly talk to him, play or anything of that sort.
This is because they fear him because of the way he looks.
We visited his school and talked to his teacher.
He says that it’s true that a lot of children do not want to talk to him because of the way he looks.
However much this teacher tries to talk to their class and tells them that this is not how Abraham chose to be born, he encourages the children to play and talk to him, just like they do with other normal kids, because Abraham is a humble and intelligent young boy.
When he is ignored, it makes him feel like he hates school, but this teacher promises that it may take a while, but they will surely get used.
They are now living a life that is bad and poor and since they did not manage to get treatment at all, they really believe and have hope that once they get a chance to access medical treatment, they would surely be fine and normal.
Just like people in this society, though they live independently.
They rent this house.
It is very hard for them, since they hardly get money for payment because the job that he does earns a lot less.
He says that he does not think that he can get a better job than this because he did not go to school.
Besides that, it is not also easy for anyone to give him a job because of the way he looks.
They say that he wouldn’t attract any buyers at all in whatever place that he may walk, and this is why they always leave him out and it hurts.
Their skin sheds off like that of a snake.
This makes it very scary when other people see it.
They really cannot hide this anymore, because they really need help.
As soon as they can get it, especially for Abraham, because his condition is getting worse.
They are not requesting for help so that they can afford to go to the hospital and seek for medical advice before it’s too late, and this is the only hope that they have, since no one cares about them anymore.

Though the world today is full of suffering, it is also full of brave people who are overcoming it, those with the greatest hearts and strongest minds.
Never let what people think about you or how you look like define you.
It is the things that we do and cannot do that really define who we really are.
Thank you for watching.
