More About Street Children..

In this part of the world, where not every persons that is mentally challenged has a safe home in the psychiatry hospitals.

There are times when we meet such people in the market places and road sides, street-walking, Street-sleeping. and without any hope of getting appropriate treatment in the hospitals.

This week, we did come across a young boy who sleeps on the street with his momma. His name is Hope and he really would love to go to school, but momma doesn't understand why and wouldn't want us to interfere  "No one is going to take my boy away" she says!

This scenario brings to mind a bugging question, How do children living with mentally challenged mums, survive?

Attached is the photograph of Hope..

PS: There are interesting up, as we have made some more visit to Hope and his mum on the street...watch this space for update!!!

Today, I crrrriiieeed. Still tear-dropping.
I weep because we just lost a friend .
one of our coolest friends.
I weep for what ignorance could bring.

Last three years, we had a similar case where one of our girls was also 'abandoned' in the church for spiritual healing. She had her legs swollen as a result of the illness. It was a mild fracture, mama assured us. Everything would be fine. Haaa! Fracture? But this is not an hospital. Swiftly, with friends help, we got them moved to a hospital where it was diagnosed that our little friend had kidney problem. She spent more than 4months in the hospital! Today she is alive and in JSS 1.

Sadly, when people resolve to goin…
