The rights denied to Nawal’s children due to legal discrimination extend beyond the rights associated with name and nationality. Even in the realms of health and medicine, they have been deprived, as told in Nawal’s story.
Nawal is sharing with us today the difficulties she had when she tried to register her children and how she was shocked with the laws that denies her basic rights.
