Susan Ithungu

Susan Ithungu is a fifteen-year-old Ugandan girl whose father locked her in a closet for six months without adequate food and water.  You can read the story here.

He did this, he said, because Susan had converted to Christianity and adopted a Christian name for her Muslim name of Aisha.

As a result of having to lie on her side the entire time, Susan cannot walk or stoop and can only sit for short periods.
