Meet Emmanuel, a 19-year-old boy who was born different in a poor community somewhere in Africa. He was born with one arm and with only one leg making life and living it a very tough one.
With many of us who might on one way or the other even boast of been born ‘full’ finding life very challenging to understand and feel empathic about ‘poor’ Emmanuel’s condition.
Emmanuel at one point in his life attempted to end it all as committing suicide was the only option he thought of while battling with stigma and poverty with a life empty of hope and full of frustrations.
