Changing a future

5 little children from Romania live in poverty. They never had their own house.

The children and a single Mom are living in a tiny room with no electricity or running water. The room is not even theirs, it is Mom’s boyfriends. He is aggressive with the children and kicks them out at least once a month.

A small house will solve all their problems. No more trauma for the kids, they will go to school and have a stable place to live.

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.

POVERTY

What is poverty?

Is poverty the fact that a person doesn’t have running water or the toilet in the house?

The poverty is when a child slept with an empty stomach, the child had no lunch or dinner, just a slice of bread and some water.

You think it’s not possible, but I know families that afford to buy their daily bread, they are short on money and have no income.

Here is one example:

Mary is 35 years old, she is a single mom of 3 children. She never had a chance to get an education when she was a child.
She has no qualifications, all she knows is how to be a Mom. The Dad left them about 1 year ago, he’s no paying any child allowance. The house is composed of one room, with no electricity or running water, the room is in a bad condition. In the village aren’t any opportunities to get a job. The only income comes from children’s allowance, which probably is around £60 monthly. the question is: how in the world can you feed 3 children and a mom with that wage?

CHILD POVERTY

Every country has families living in poverty. With this global pandemic, I know a lot of parents have lost their jobs, and it’s really hard to find a new job.

When a child is born, they do not choose their families dependending on their social status, how many money they have in their bank account. God will take care of that child.

I know children who has to work instead of going to school, when actually only the education can save you from poverty.

Some children drop off the school to work, or they get married (early marriage). I know hundreds of girls between the age of 12 and 18 and they already have children, and a partner, they became mature before their time. In a village, is a girl and she is 13, she gave birth to her son last year, the kid has a father and they live together in a tiny room, the community, parents, family they all are aware of this situation, but they normalize it and say nothing about it. Now, how many chances has that child to go to school, and have a job? I think the child most likely will copy the parents behavior, and will take them like a role model.

When the kid will start school in that village, the teacher will give him no changes of higher education, probably will avoid going to his desk and look into his work, ask if we understood the lesson, and so on. The parents, do not have themselves education, so what happens to the child? He will fall into the poverty cycle. Believe me, I am talking the true, true cases, I have seen them with my eyes.

Poverty is all around the globe, some children have no food with days, no access to education, or a bright future.

These children needs people who cares about them, not people who cares about their pockets. Try to help a poor family, and do not judge them.

What is BREAST IRONING?

I wanna talk today about this subject as I find it really sad and violates the rights of the children (girls). That girl goes to a trauma, her self esteem is shaking badly.

BREAST IRONING – It’s a traditional practice whereby the breasts of a girl are flattered with tools like heated objects( spatulas, stones, hammers) to try to make them stop developing or disappear.

Usually happens in the villages, and it’s mostly done by the female members of the family, by an auntie, grandmother, eldest sister.

Some women whose breasts were ”ironed” have said they had trouble producing milk and breastfeeding their children.

Mothers in Cameroon thinks that by this practice girls will look less sexually attractive to men and keeping them in school for longer. (global citizen.org)

According to UNICEF, 38% of the children in Cameroon are married before they turn 18th. and 20% of them drop out of school after getting pregnant.

The practice is more common is West and Central Africa, yet has no borders, it occurs all over the world and has migrated with people and culture in the UK.

I can only imagine what is in their mind, what emotions they have, sure there is fear, pain, trauma, sadness, and so on.

It’s thought that about 1000 girls across the UK have been subjected to the practice. BREAST IRONING is child abuse!

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!
