Meet the family of 10 disabled , four dead and the rest dying slowly

In this world, nothing sounds so painful to have a bedridden child that must be carried day in day out to do even basic things such as eating and attending nature's call.

But to a family in the Western North region of Ghana, their burden is a quintuple, five times, of this misery.

They gave birth to ten children, five boys, five girls. All the five boys are befallen by a strange disease that gets them paralysed when they reach their teen age. Two of the boys have now died.

Two of the three living boys can't walk, crawl, or sit on their own, or eat unaided.

They live in a neglected cottage at Yawmatwa-Nkwanta in the Bia District of the Western North region.

Due to their condition, the family of the parents don't have anything to do with them. They are stigmatised.

GH Events TV visited them in their home, and the parents narrated their sad news in a video that accompanied this story.


Two of the boys died at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), Kumasi.

The doctors couldn't diagnose the nature of the strange disease.



Now, the first of the remaining boys is 27 years old, the second is twenty-two, and the youngest is fourteen. He (the last boy) is called Sofo Victor, and he is still in school, struggling to walk using a plastic chair. He is in primary five, and dreams to be a mechanic in the future if he could be healed of his disease and walk unaided.



The family now live on the benevolence of others.

They are appealing to the government, and everyone who will be touched by their story to come to their aid in this difficult situation.
