A rare skin disease making children’s bodies seem like they are covered with scales has sent chills down the public’s spine.
The disease, whose cause is yet to be established, has affected a number of children in Wajir with one particular case touching the heart of Kenyans.
The plight of Baby Abshir was highlighted by a group of well-wishers following the adversely bad condition of his skin.
The 10-year old was born normal but the disease later affected his whole body leaving him crippled.
After campaigns on Twitter under #BabyAbshir and #SaveWajirKids Abshir was airlifted to Nairobi on Monday and taken to the Kenyatta National Hospital.
One twitter user said, “I wish it was possible to stop all political activities until we #SaveWajirKids.”
