My visit to Nigeria left me in a state of shock because of how inhuame it was to see innocent people suffering from lack of resources. Driving through the villages, the polio epidemic is evident and the reality is seeing kids walkiing on all fours, adults with out legs walking down dirt roads with only their arms. The disabled are ostracized and in addition to living in extreme poverty, they do not have the resources such as canes, crutches and wheelchairs to aid their mobility. After an experience like this, becoming a humanitarian and helping deliver the resources and aid to these villages (that is desperately needed) is a priority now.
