As she placed a tablespoon of food near her daughter's lips, single-mother of three Madam Hasnah Sabani, 55, turned to this reporter and said in Malay: "It's been like this for the past 37 years."
Madam Hasnah's eldest child, Miss Mizla Majid, 37, has been bedridden her entire life. Miss Mizla was born healthy in 1974, but within a week, she had high fever, fits and jaundice, and her head had swelled.

"Love. My children are special. All they ever need is my attention and affection," said Madam Hasnah, beaming with pride.
