Waridi was abandoned by her family who believed she was demonically possessed. Left to fend for herself on the streets, she spent her time in a local bar. A relative brought her to the Gabriella Centre for help. She was diagnosed with epilepsy and given the proper medication and therapy. Her seizures are now under control, and she is able to function normally. Brenda reached out to her family to teach them about epilepsy and provide them with counseling. They finally understand what is happening to Waridi and have taken her back home. Now she is fully included in family activities and treated the same as all her siblings and her life is full of possibilities.
