"How can I smile and be
happy when I have to accept being hungry so that my baby brother and
sisters can eat the little bit of food that my mom brings home
... when I can’t go to school, but rather I have to sell plastic
bags on the street and in the market place?
"How can I smile when
every day I have to get drinking water from a common faucet shared
by so many poor families like mine ... step into open sewers in our
streets ... put up with all the drug addicts,
violence and, to top it all, watch my mom being abused and my
brothers and sisters abandoned. Life is hard here."
"Can you help us and
children like me? We want to grow by sharing with our mothers
in MJUCEC's “Center of
Formation” where we’ll learn lots of things, especially new choices and how to help ourselves.
Learning to help ourselves is our only hope. We're willing to work
really hard. Please
help if you can."
you for caring!
