20 year old Bilya talks with specialist nurse Samuel Joseph, the day before going into surgery for the first time for reconstructive surgery. He suffers from a neglected disease called noma which Bilya thinks he first contracted when he was one. -
Noma starts as a gum infection. It destroys bone/tissue and can make it hard to eat, speak, see or breathe. On top of that, survivors must deal with the social stigma around disfigurement. People would run away when they saw Bilya's face. "They didn’t see me as a human being," he says. -

Noma is a disease that mostly affects children under five living in poverty. 90% of people affected by the disease die within the first two weeks if they don't receive treatment, but many families don't have access to, or can't afford the antibiotics to treat it.

"More than anything else, what really astounded me was the resilience of our patients. Even with the disease, many would be up and about, smiling in the evening after their surgery, often making us wonder if it was the same patient who we had operated on that morning. "
