Three kids living in Mian Ghundi, a region close to Quetta suffer from a suspicious disease. These kids are dependent on the sun for all their activities. The people around them have named them as the ‘solar powered kids’
The children are active and healthy during the day, they are full of energy as they see the first ray of the sun, but as soon as the sun starts to sets around Maghrib their bodies become weak and they are not able to perform any activity after the sun sets.
Hashim, the father of Rasheed and Sohaib says that his boys are perfectly fine during the day, they play cricket, feed the cattle, go to the Madrasah like normal kids but as soon as the sun sets their bodies become dysfunctional.
Ilyas, who is the youngest son also suffers from the same disease. The doctors are puzzled about this situation.
Treatment of ‘solar kids’ has been initiated in Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS). The doctors may take further assistance of foreign doctors.
