    Afrina

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka

Story

Residing in Bangalore, Karnataka, nine-year-old Afrina suffers from plexiform neurofibromatosis, lacks the funds required for her facial surgery, and therefore urges the community to help her fulfill her dream of living an ordinary life.

Afrina has plexiform neurofibroma on the right side of her face. The medical ailment is an uncommon variant of neurofibroma, a benign tumor of peripheral nerves arising from a proliferation of all neural elements.

Afrina was born with the ailment and has been suffering ever since. As if her financial condition wasn't enough, she also bears the brunt of society. Children her age make fun of her facial deformation, call her names, and even isolate her.

Coming from a non-stable financial background, Afrina awaits a good samaritan to guide her out of her misery. She expresses her inability and seeks financial aid from society, urging people to support her medical journey during these testing times.
