Susan Ithungu, who suffered permanent leg damage as a young girl after being locked in a small room for becoming a Christian, is now facing another health challenge.
Susan came to know Christ in 2009. When her Muslim father discovered her conversion, he began to beat her and threatened to kill her. After trying for months to persuade Susan to deny Christ, he finally locked her in a small space in their mud shanty. Six months passed before neighbours realised what was happening to Susan and notified the police, who rescued her and took her to a hospital. Susan suffered from untreated malaria while locked away in the small room, and the months of calcium deficiency affected her growing bones.
Having already endured multiple surgeries, Susan, now a teenager, recently developed an infection in her thigh that required another immediate surgery. She faces a long recovery and possibly further surgery, and she will also be missing more school.
