Unimaginable

Some families still live in unimaginable ways. Even though we are in the year 2021
The family I am talking today is formed of a widowed Mom and 4 little kids. They live in a high rate of poverty, don’t have their own house (living with a mom’s sister) and their income is low as Mom is not working because she has to take care of the children.

Sometimes the good fairy sends some money or food. But they need a little house to call it theirs otherwise they have no stability and the fear that tomorrow will end up on the streets.
The authorities can’t help or do want to. They practically do not care. In Romania, in the rural area, the poverty rate is 34%.


Now, let’s think of their near future, what are they going to be, can they answer the question ”what do you want to be when you grow up”?
They can’t answer for sure!


They might think from where and when the next meal will come or if tomorrow their aunt will kick them out, which is a huge probability.
I am trying to help and give them a future and HOPE. If you wanna be part of it, please donate whatever you can or share with other people.

Disadvantaged children

It can affect children from birth and left unchecked and unchallenged, can impact negatively on every aspect of a child’s life.

Usually, poor children are located in hard to reach villages, isolated, but not only. In these villages, communities people follow traditions, they copy each others even if it’s bad or good. Sometimes no one is going to these villages to make a difference, and the children grow up and have no future.

I used to live like a disadvantaged kid some years of my life, what was the reason? well, an alcoholic dad and unemployment of both of my parents. I do not condemn them, but I try to understand their actions.

There are a number of reasons why a family may be disadvantaged, and therefore, vulnerable.

  1. Unemployment
  2. Single parent
  3. Low income
  4. Substance abuse…

What are the effects on a child living in poverty?

A child may suffer from:

A poor diet or neglect

Low educational achievement: no school trips, no books, uniform packed lunch, healthy snack

Lack of positive interactions with parents

They might be unable to understand their own emotions and those of others

Poor/dirty clothes, shoes.

The child may have low self esteem

Tensions/fights between parents at home.

The child may experience some types of abuse from parents or family.

Children without parental care

There is so much to write and say about this subject. It’s really sad to see children exposed to harm, abuse. Today we gonna focus on children without parental care.

Children without parental care are exposed to many risks, neglect, all types of abuse, and also large numbers of children end up in institutional care.

In 2008, in Central and Eastern Europe some 1.3 million children lived in public care; just under half of these lived in large-scale residential care facilities or boarding schools (UNICEF, At home or in a home, 2011). In the Middle East and Africa, over 300,000 children are estimated to live in residential care (UNICEF 2009 Progress for children).

There are many reasons why children are left without parents:

Natural death

The parents went to work abroad

They can’t afford raising them

Divorce, sickness

Abuse of drugs, alcohol

Can you think of other reasons, comment below!

Few days ago I’ve seen a documentary about children without parental care in China. They’ve estimated that over 60 million of children have no parents!

A child said ”Everyone has a Mom and Dad, but I do not, at the end of every semester when the school asks for our parents feedback, I do not have anyone to wright the comments, as my grandparents can’t write or read. I often feel envious when I see children with their parents on the street”.

Are these kids condemned to a life without parental love, harm, neglect, exploitation, sadness and so on?

I think we all should do something for them, to be there physically or by supporting the people which are ready to change a life!

How does living in poverty affect a child?

What is poverty, how is like to live all your childhood in the poverty, what opportunities has a person once reached the adulthood, what can we do to help poor children?

Poverty is a state condition in which a person or community lack the financial resources and essentials for a minimum standard of living. Poverty means that the income level from employment is so low that basic human needs can’t be met. Poverty-stricken people and families might go without proper housing, clean water, electricity, food, medical attention, and so on.

Living in poverty like a child is really sad, they might have a sense of hopeless about their future than their more affluent peers. Low income, poor quality housing, debt put children’s mental health at risk.

Imagine the child wakes up in the morning, in a tiny house with no running water, heating, bathroom, electricity, kitchen, no food in the fridge. Just a small room, 1 bed, 1 stove, and nothing else, but that child is preparing to go to school with no breakfast, uniform or not knowing when the next meal comes from. Isn’t this sad? I know people living like this, I used to live similar conditions, but God had his plans for me and my family.

Living in poverty can effect a child in all areas like education, health, personal development. If the child doesn’t have the luck of having good parents, like the ones who understand the importance of education, that child most probably will drop out the school,so the child needs someone who is ready to help him, encourage and send him to school. I have seen in many poor communities this kids of problem, kids dropping out the school and getting married (early marriage), a child which is 13 can give up to school and form a family, so the poverty circle never ends. This is one of the reasons I want to raise a concern about it. The power of example in this communities is strong, children thinks that is normal and they should do the same like others.

Children having children is blossoming,once this, many more problems comes like child abuse, domestic violence, poverty.

Sometimes in these communities comes people ready to help, improve their conditions and give opportunities, some families are ready and open for it, some are not interested. But if you can save 1 child from 100, for me is like gold, means a lot.

I am trying my best to be able, in the future to help poor children, they need a hand of help, they need someone who cares about them. Helping a child to go to school, or to feed, improve living conditions is like saving a life.

BE KIND!

EMPATHY/COMPASSION

What is empathy?

I have to admit that first time I heard and learn this word was in my first year of University, while I studied social work.

I think is something amazing and kind to have empathy.

The standard definition for empathy is – ”Empathy is the ability to understand and appreciate another person’s feelings and experience”.

Empathy seems to have deep roots in our brains and bodies, and in our evolutionary history. Elementary forms of empathy have been observed in our primate relatives, in dogs, and even in rats.

So now, in my perspective empathy refers more generally to the ability of feeling the emotions of another person, but nor the desire to help.

COMPASSION!

What is compassion? Compassion motivates people to go out of their way to help the physical, mental, or emotional pains of another and themselves. This means to suffer together!

Compassion is being aware of others needs or interests and acting to help them. Being genuinely concerned for the welfare of others.

Like the bible verse says ”Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience, Colossians 3:12”.

Compassionate people usually display the following behaviours:

  1. They are receptive to the demands of other and even anticipate them
  2. They have good thoughts about others
  3. They treat people well and do not expect a reward
  4. Kind and helpful with the people around them

I love the word of compassion, wasn’t God compassionate with us? He was and He is!

He saw the suffering and He gave his only son for us. This is true love!

There really is no better declaration of compassion than the one Jesus made on the cross.

In Matthew 9:36 – When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like a sheep without a shepherd.

Jesus sees the needs and acts.

There are so many needs in world, we all experienced to be asked for money by kids, adults in the streets, well I do not encourage to give money, giving money means you encourage the person to beg and to continue doing it. But what if instead of giving money teach them how to earn money?

”Give someone a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”.

What I want to do is to help children continue going to school, build houses for poor families, invlving them in community work, helping each others is compassion!
