Nobody Excluded - Stories from Nairobi

Daglas Opanga and Harriet Opanga, his daughter, live in Mukuru Kwa Njenga slum, Nairobi, Kenya.
Harriet, 10, suffered a burn to her foot which, having never been properly treated, resulted in the child unable to walk.

“Today it has become very difficult to find a job nearby and so when Harriet's foot suffered the burn we could not pay for the necessary treatment (in Kenya health care is very expensive); after a long time looking for someone to offer us assistance we had lost all our hopes.
