This Rwandan man named Zanziman Ellie willing to hikes several miles a day to avoid facing bullies that tortured him for his condition called microcephaly.

Microcephaly is a condition where the head (circumference) is smaller than normal. Microcephaly may be caused by genetic abnormalities or by drugs, alcohol, certain viruses, and toxins that are exposed to the fetus during pregnancy and damage the developing brain tissue.

The mother of Zanziman considered him a miracle after she had just lost five of her children in Rwanda – upset, she and her husband prayed to their God to give them a son, even saying that they wouldn’t mind an “abnormal child, as long as they don’t die.”

Nine months later, Ellie was born.

Originating from Rwanda, he is usually harassed by the villagers there because of his facial features. To escape the cruel villagers that bully him for being “different”, he hikes around 32 km a day.

While visiting Zanziman’s mother, she told that Zanziman is being mocked and criticized of almost every day.

Zanziman could not speak or communicate properly with the villagers, so he learned how to use his motor skills and runs away from the villagers to avoid getting himself getting bullied.

Having never been in school, Zanziman would travel around 236 km weekly and sometimes eat the grass from the jungle.

Zanziman is diagnosed with microcephaly, where the baby’s head is born much smaller than normal. This condition can lead to having learning difficulties or physical disabilities as they grow older. Usually, the baby would develop intellectual disabilities.

The scans during the pregnancy could pick up the signs of this condition, but there are no cure or treatment for it.

Microcephaly often happens to children whose mothers are affected by the Zika virus.

Ellie’s mother has been nothing but loving and caring for her son, but her situation has worsened and she now is struggling to bring food to the table.

A GoFundMe fundraiser has been set up to help this family eat and live properly. Click HERE if you want to donate to the family.
