The incredible story of Tameru Zegeye from Ethiopia
“When I was born my mother said I was cursed and carried the devil,” he explains. “My grandfather saved my life. He said every human had the right to a life.”
Tameru was born with deformed legs and both feet ineffective stumps turned inwards. His mother abandoned him after three months in the care of his grandfather.
Unable to walk, Tameru began using his hands for mobility at a very early age. Enrolled as a deacon in Ethiopian Orthodox priest school, Tameru went to and from many villages crawling “like a snake” and walking on his hands.
Now Tameru has set his sights on another goal: to teach his skills to other disabled and able body people in Addis Ababa, to be known worldwide for his strong spirit and quite incredible stunt skills, to travel the world, and to make a livelihood from what he does. - Read the full article: ThisIsGuavo.com
