While you are throwing away that waste food, remember that there are some teenagers who need that waste food to survive. Before I proceeded to the Stadium yesterday to watch the match, I saw these children struggling with a bag of waste foods that someone just threw into the thrash-bin. I walked down to them, brought out a few cash and immediately they saw me looking at their direction, they rushed to me almost on climbing me.
They struggled to get the money but I demanded to know who was the head among them. I instructed that the money should be shared among them. When I requested to know how many of them were in that incompleted, abandoned building, they said they were 18 in that place alone. Some of them who were in the building saw me discussing with the ones around the waste bin, they started coming out and I ended spending more than what I had in mind.
It may not mean anything to you that children carried for nine months in the womb, and finally came out unhurt are now roaming the streets eating from the dustbin. No education, poor health condition, poor feeding, unfriendly environment, exposed to dangers, abuses, etc. I will not call any government agency to visit there but put yourself in the shoes of those children, do they really deserve the kind of treatment they are getting? Do you think when they grow up that our society will be free and people walk any moment without threat to life?
Think about it.
