Children's room BANS girl, two, because her deformed skull might scare other children & # 39; – and her mother says she needs surgery before being accepted
- Little girl was born with a deformed skull and fingers and toes fused together
- Her mother, who lives in the Republic of Bashkortostan, Russia, was told that she could not go
- The daycare staff told her that she needed surgery before she got a place
A two-year-old girl was not allowed in the nursery because the staff said her deformed skull would scare other children.
Sofya Zakharova was born with a skull distortion and her fingers and toes fused together.
Her parents, who live in the Republic of Bashkortostan, Russia, were told that she had to undergo surgery before she could get a place.
They desperately try to get surgery for her, but meanwhile experts warn that her development will suffer if she has no contact with other children her age.
Her mother Svetlana Gizatullina and father Rasul live in a house in the village of Alatany without running water and no central heating.
Officials are now investigating who refused the little girl and the place and why she was not given proper medical care, local media claim.

Speaking of the case, pedagogical psychologist Ekaterina Belan told reporters in the area: & The sooner she experiences the experience of interactions, the easier it is for her to deal with the circumstances in which she lives and grows.
& # 39; The more interactions she gets, the easier it is to accept herself for who she is. & # 39;
The child's case was taken over by a local charity called & # 39; Rainbow of Goodness & # 39; but the school still refused to give her a place, her parents claim.
Her mother says she has been told: & # 39; First you have to arrange an operation so that she can go to kindergarten as a normal child. & # 39;

Head of the Republic of Bashkortostan Radiy Khabirov said officials had visited the family and the authorities are planning to find an apartment so they don't spend the winter in a cold house.
He said: & # 39; I understand that if there had been no intervention by the foundation for charity, there would have been no meetings on this and no relocation.
& # 39; It is already clear that the rights of the child and parents are being violated, and there is now an appropriate legal assessment. & # 39;
He added that he would personally follow the fate of the girl to ensure that it remained on track.
