'A Mysterious Fate’ is a photography story about the thousands of children with nodding syndrome in remote northern Uganda. For a long time, no one was sure how they got it, or how to cure them. Recently researchers concluded that the disease is caused by an 'abnormal protein' that accumulates in the brain and causes brain degeneration. First discovered in Tanzania in the 1960s, the disease causes stunted growth, body deformities – even blindness and death. These children suffer in the shadows, their plight ignored by local government and beyond. The one center that is providing most of the support for the incurable condition recently reopened after being shut down for over a year. Through the lives of Walter and Grace, both children with nodding syndrome, this story brings to light this baffling condition and the dedication of their mother Lucy to care for and love her children amidst mounting challenges. With new cases coming up again, this mysterious disease continues to affect and disrupt the lives of the young ones. MANDATORY CREDIT: Esther Ruth Mbabazi / Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting / VII

'A Mysterious Fate’ is a photography story about the thousands of children with nodding syndrome in remote northern Uganda. For a long time, no one was sure how they got it, or how to cure them. Recently researchers concluded that the disease is caused by an 'abnormal protein' that accumulates in the brain and causes brain degeneration. First discovered in Tanzania in the 1960s, the disease causes stunted growth, body deformities – even blindness and death. These children suffer in the shadows, their plight ignored by local government and beyond. The one center that is providing most of the support for the incurable condition recently reopened after being shut down for over a year. Through the lives of Walter and Grace, both children with nodding syndrome, this story brings to light this baffling condition and the dedication of their mother Lucy to care for and love her children amidst mounting challenges. With new cases coming up again, this mysterious disease continues to affect and disrupt the lives of the young ones. MANDATORY CREDIT: Esther Ruth Mbabazi / Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting / VII
