schoolchalk board

I loved school: the friends, the fun (kind of) but most of all the learning. I loved to learn, I still love to learn.

Yesterday I was told about a teenage girl who also loves to learn, who also loves school but, who is no longer able to go. This is not a tale of neglect  or of parents that can’t be bothered, on the contrary, this girl has a father who adores her. A father that adores his daughter  so much that he carried her to and from school from the age of 6 until she was 13. Yes, CARRIED.

You see this girl is disabled and unable to walk , her family don’t even have enough money to eat properly never mind enough to buy a wheelchair. Yet, because this man wanted his daughter to experience school just the same as every other child  in the neighbourhood, for seven years he carried her to and from school five days a week- only stopping because her weight simply became too much to bear.

It seems such a tragedy that a child who wants to go to school is denied the opportunity simply because she was born into poverty……. and happens to be disabled. A wheelchair costs £200, in the grand scheme of things it’s a small sum but, for this family it’s an impossible amount.

Can you help us to help her?

A wheelchair would be such a tremendous gift to give this girl. Will you help us to raise £200 to give that gift?

As always, any help is greatly appreciated.

      Ahh, thank you for your generosity and kindness Rabah…this post is actually a few years old though and fortunately we were able to get the girl her wheelchair in a matter of days. I look forward to hearing more about your association’s projects soon insha’Allah!
