The house of Miaia is a compact room behind the walls of another building of the leprosy town; clean and tidy. However, he says: “Excuse me, this is not compact here … I do not have anyone … I’m going to go to the four legs, I’ll do my work.”
Mijah is from Shirvan, near Mashhad.
He also showed leprosy from childhood: “I was a kid, I was working, I made dough, I cooked bread, I once saw, my hands no longer have life.

I was going to myself. This side On the other side, then my right foot was infected, and this one was cut off at Taleghani Hospital. Now I can not do … I can not walk with these shoes at all … every day I come to the front door to go to one of the neighbors, say, if you go to the bakery, buy bread for me … ”
Income? Property? It does not have much. She still raised her hands without her fingers, saying, “She is giving 30 tooman, she’s a welfareist, she’s 45 dollars a subsidy, I have nothing of my own … This room is also for the town, I die, another comes here …” So? Yes that’s it!
