Why To Help ?


Have you ever held a poor dying baby in your arms?

Have you ever seen a mother in tears because she cannot look after her poor children?

Have you ever seen poor children so deformed that you cannot bear to look into their eyes?

Have you ever watched a poor little child play, knowing that the only thing her parents left her was the AIDS virus?

Have you ever seen poor children beg for the very things that we throw out?

Do you know how mockery feels?

Or what its like to be forgotten, to be avoided, betrayed, abused, given up...

Do you know hopelessness? Shame?

Do you know what it means to be poor?

To have nothing to eat, to starve, to die every day a little more?

Do you know the feeling when you see your friends playing while you have to work?

What is playing for you if all you do is work?

Have you ever been moved by the fact that thousands of poor children die each day?

Have you ever thought that awful! Somebody should do something?

Have you ever realised that someone could be you?

Have you ever cared enough to help in some way?
