I met this children begging on hot afternoon during school hours at EKEONUNWA MARKET Owerri yesterday been 9th of April, 2019. So I had to trace them today Wednesday April 10th 2019, to their Home town Ebenano Eziala Ekwe Isu L.G.A. of IMO STATE.
There I met a surprise, A crippled father, Mr. Chukwuma (Onwa), aged mother and seven (7) children without a mother to look after them. (Their mother is dead).
It was discovered that these large family was left at Mercy of this old
Woman to care as a mother to the crippled man and her seven grand children.
She is old coupled with the injury on her hand and leg which affected her movement,yet she’s the one these family are left at her Mercy
These led these little innocent children into street and market begging to at least put food on their table daily as they took several risks everyday going to different locations for arms begging.
Considering the environment,the roof of the house is very bad that some part has fallen off making it inhabitable to them during rain fall and on a sunny day, with mosquitoes resting and feasting on their bodies each passing night. What a trauma.
It was sad day as it look as if my visit was to remind them their painful condition they have lived with for years, as the crippled man and his aged mother were in tears all through my stay as they watch the beautiful children God gave to them doing what an adult Should be doing.
They begged individuals, religious bodies, NGOs, Government, and philanthropists, Nneoma Nkechi Okorocha, and all Nigerians to come to their aid as they have need to put roof over their head because of the dangerous nature of the building sighting rainy season almost here.
It’s three years now since this innocent children has been on the street begging for the family to at least eat food. Without a mother, a crippled father and aged grand mama.
Only God and alms given has been the only source of help.
WHAT A RISK?

Let’s help stop these children who should be in school from street begging.
Keep Sharing until help comes their way. God bless you as you partner to give them a new life.+234 816 488 5378
