I VISITED AN ORPHANAGE

I visited an orphanage today. I was with my friend, Olubunmi Olateju. It wasn’t much like the official stuff you would see in movies of destitutes, thin kids and the like.

It was simply a family of different children. No difference, no thin ravage looking child. I noticed though that the house was small. They need improvement and lots of support. A lot of people had come but were only interested in giving a little rice, beans or the like and snapping loads of pictures. I gave what offering I could and refused to get that cheap publicity (so I didn’t snap the place or the children).

I was touched by the home (Mfanyima Orphanage Home) and the simple man and woman who have turned their house into a haven for kids from a month old to thirty five and over. I plan to give them what help in services and all that I can. I think you should try to visit an orphanage too. You must not snap them all and paste so that everyone knows how ‘kind’ or ‘philantropic’ you are.

The main thing is, touch a life!
