Olumide, a 12-year old apprentice mechanic, who was forced to leave school due to financial problems, was brought to the leprosy clinic by his father for admission into the leprosy settlement. Olumide was unhappy when he saw the aged and crippled patients in the settlement, facing his own bleak future. Olumide was brought to the clinic because of bilateral footdrop and clawing of hands with severe reactive skin lesions. Olumide's father was determined to leave Olumide in the settlement, because of the village gossip. Olumide had no choice but to stay in the camp. His father bade him goodbye and left.
