Read a previous post about Danjuma here.
Danjuma was a young boy when terrorists launched an early morning attack on his Christian village. He was so badly injured by a machete that villagers dug him a grave. To their surprise, Danjuma survived and recovered, though he was left blind and with severe injuries. During his recovery, nurses often remarked on his joyful smile.
A year ago, Danjuma enrolled in a school for the blind, and he is now in his second year there. According to the director, he is a fast learner and very intelligent. She also said he still walks around with that joyful smile on his face.
