Suffer in silence

Posted by Tatjana Vukic | 23-03-2012 18:45 | Category: Homelessness, Poverty, Developing World

The number of street children is increasing day by day, fighting for survival in an uncaring and hostile environment. All these children have lost their parental love and affection. There is no one to look after them… This heartbreaking video shows a Child telling us his life story in Pantomime. (more after the break)


Such children are denied appropriate role models and exposed to vice, from picking pockets, prostitution and drugs, to street violence. The public sees these children not as victims and exploited but as perpetrators of crime and undesirable…

While watching this video, I was asking myself who is going to praise this sweet Child for his creative spirit, ... for his pure strenght to tell the story about his hard life with such a lightness.

All these children need a home where they can bloom in strong adults with compassionate and pure hearts.

Do not let them excluded and invisible suffer in silence.
