A national organization, The Organization for Children Harmony (TOCH) is providing care for the 9-year-old girl who was hammered on both feet with six-inch nails by her mother in Tonj, Warrap state.
Mr. Marko Madut, the executive director of the organization, confirmed that they have taken the girl to a clinic and are working diligently to help her return to her feet.
Madut said since the mother of the girl was apprehended, their staff have visited the family of the girl but learned that the victim has other siblings—about nine in the family—and there is a visible vulnerability.
He disclosed that they are now providing food to the family of the minor as their mother is facing the law.
“We are taking care of her as she is being fed and treated at the healthcare center where we support vulnerable people. Our staff is handling her medications by paying the medics in the clinics as she is being injected,” said Madut.
The TOCH executive director noted the financial instability of the young girls’ families and decided to provide food bags to sustain them, as their mother is away, and the nailed girl remains with them.
The incident sparked outrage and complaints on social media.
Investigations are still ongoing, and it remains to be seen what verdict will be set for her mother.
