Afroza Begum from Bangladesh lives in constant pain and distress due to a rare medical condition that has caused her right hand swell to the size of a football.
She said: “I’ve had this ever since birth, I was born with the condition. I think I had it even when I was in my mother’s womb. It was small but eventually it started growing. Now the blisters grow on my hand and they itch badly – but it never hurts.”
The hand swelled so fast she couldn’t afford treatment, she had now been referred to a plastic surgeon but she can’t afford the fees.
“I want to get treatment but it is beyond my capacity,” she said.
“The blisters are only growing bigger and now they bother me.”

Despite the condition, she manages to complete everyday chores with just one hand – including cleaning, and sweeping.
