19 year old Esnath Mavhimira of Bhuka in Masvingo is appealing for assistance with funds to purchase medication as she is suffering from hydrocephalus and a metabolic bone disease.

Hydrocephalus, also called water in the brain, is a condition where there is an abnormal build-up of cerebrospinal fluid in the cavities of the brain.

Esnath’s mother says her daughter’s illness started in 2011 and since then Esnath ‘s life has never been the same as she can no longer sit or walk on her own.

Esnath is currently admitted at Masvingo Provincial Hospital but her parents cannot afford to purchase the medication she needs which include Calcium and  Vitamin D. The medication costs close to ZWL$3000.

Those who wish to assist Esnath can contact her mother on 0776440867.
