Description : To prevent amputation, she and her family moved to Ibb for safety and treatment. Three fingers were amputated instead of the whole foot. She reached a better stage of her treatment but its high cost left her and her husband indebted. She is trying to spread knowledge about the dangers of diabetes and how to deal with, through her personal experience.
