This painting portrays the psychosocial impact of infertility in Africa. It mirrors an infertile sad and angry woman desperately wishing to be pregnant. Such unobtainable desires may elicit affective disorders such as anxiety neurosis and depression.
Does empathy plays a role in easing such psychological distress! Yes it does.

"I ignored the seriousness of diabetes
I thought I am young and invincible.
I was wrong.
I realized that Diabetes has no mercy for anyone.
I have lost the most precious gift of nature, my vision.
I am unable to see
I regret that I did not follow my doctor's plan of care." Dr M.Osman

The word pain originates from the Latin "poena" meaning a penalty or fine. "Why should an innocent girl be penalized with genital cutting that causes lingering pain through her adulthood?"
