An 8-year-old Child Faces Disapproval for Their Adorable Blue Eyes

Some cultures have very interesting traditions and customs, traveling around the world allows you to discover not only these things, but other particularities of each place and its people.

An 8-year-old boy named Abushe lives in Jinka, in southern Ethiopia. He was marginalized from his village because he has a special condition; he has incredibly blue eyes.

But this quality is not seen well by many in Africa, just as albinos are rejected.

Abushe has had to live from a very young age with contempt from most of the people around him, he is continually bullied by other children and does not receive the same opportunities as other boys his age

But Abushe is not cursed nor does he have evil inside his body, but rather he suffers from Waardenburg syndrome, it is a genetic disorder that causes Abushe to have eyes of a very special bluish tone, since they are very bright.

This syndrome only affects 1 in 300,000 people, however, it also means having certain degrees of deafness and the rejection of many people who do not understand this condition.

Abushe lives with his grandmother in a cabin made of adobe and wood, it is a modest home after the house burned down and they lost everything. Now they have the basics and what little money they have is used so that Abushe can attend school.

When he was born, his parents believed that he was blind, however, they never sought treatment or any kind of diagnosis due to his very precarious financial condition. They knew they would never be able to pay for Abushe’s medical bills.

His family has never considered him to be “cursed” or with defects, on the contrary, they consider that those eyes and his condition in general are a “gift from God”, since very few people are blessed with such a gift.

Abushe’s only luxury item is a red soccer ball. It’s all he had left of that fire. Abushe loves football and tries to watch a game whenever possible, he admires Lionel Messi.

“Messi is the same as me. He is not like the others!”

It seems that when you play soccer you can imagine that being different from everyone is not a problem, but rather a special characteristic. He is always seen smiling, with that look and a big smile he is capable of captivating anyone.

As has happened with some people who, after meeting him, are shocked on the spot. For example, the photographer Eric Lafforgue or the traveler Mike Eloff.
