Who then hears the cry of these ill- treated, discriminated , mistreated & forgotten children?
Mothers dump disabled babies in dustbins; young, needy and powerless little ones.
They find themselves in forced labour: deserted, naked and starving.
Disabled and forgotten, many children with special needs are unable to understand their helplessness.
Others roam the streets of African cities begging and eating off the waste from rich families. Some are beaten, burnt and murdered in cold blood.
I was overwhelmed when i met friends who we talked to about the plight of the disabled child and a group of people working with Ekisa ministries responded and donated mattresses to disabled children in Buyuge village in Kaliro District.
