The Story of Fadumo

Fadumo is 28 years old patient. She lives in a small village located about 30km west of Qardho called YAKA. She was born blind. Three of her brothers suffer from blindness at the same time.  Unfortunately, the family is poor and can’t afford any treatment for her and her siblings. They are concerned about her future too.

Initially she presented with auditory hallucinations, disorganized speech, inappropriate affect with an occasionally euphoric mood, and grossly disorganized behavior and suspicious. Her sister brought her to SMHF Qardho Mental Health Center.
