Epilepsy - Misku's Story

By Dominic Dee | Project Volunteer

Misku
Misku

Misku is 26 and she hass had epilepsy for 12 years. She lives 3 hours from the health centre and works at home cooking and cleaning. Before starting treatment at the health centre, she was having a seizure at least every week. Nowadays, however, she rarely seizes at all, though has had attacks during labour. She comes regularly for her appointments and to collect her seizure medicine, phenobarbitone. Misku acknowledges the treatment has made her feel a lot better.

We rely on generous donations to support and provide treatment to individuals just like Misku, giving them an improved quality of life.
