Like any other teenager, she is a bright, happy girl who one day dreams of one day opening her own shop.

But after being born with a mystery condition, Rahma Haruna has no limbs and suffers constant pain, as she lives most of her life in a plastic bowl.

The 19-year-old, from Kano, Nigeria, was born a healthy baby but when she turned six months old her growth came to a sudden halt and she stopped hitting key development milestones.

Her mother, Fadi, said: 'From six months when she learnt how to sit that was when it began. She didn’t learn how to crawl.

'She started with a fever and that was it. Then stomach pains. Then her body parts like hands and legs. She cannot use any if the ache strikes.'

Rahma’s family do their best to provide her with a fulfilling life and transport her around the village in a plastic bowl, foreign media reports.
