(Video) Meet Zanziman Ellie, A Man With A Condition Called ‘Microcephaly’

Published

By

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.

(Video) Get Ready for ‘Earwig and the Witch’, Studio Ghibli’s First CGI Movie

Published

By

Many of us might watch at least one of the movies produced by Studio Ghibli, or even heard of it. It’s no shock that their distinctive art style and animation would capture the hearts of many people either children or adults.

Now, Studio Ghibli wanted to approach the fully-generated animation, instead of the traditional way, which has always been their identity.

The company has released its first trailer for Earwig and the Witch, which will be making its premiere on NHK on December 30th.

Aya, an orphan that was taken from her home by a weird pair, learns that she is a witch’s daughter. The style of the CGI is very easy on the eyes, as they avoid the usual 3D-rendered styles that would taint their style.

The movie is set to premiere in North American theaters in early 2021. It’s not certain this will be a classic on par with Spirited Away or My Neighbor Totoro, but it has the Miyazaki heritage with Hayao’s son Goro Miyazaki directing the movie.
