Orphans Out There Need Help

I was in my vacation of senior six I happened to go some where in certain school to teach where i spent one month and a half i couldn't continue teaching because of my personal challennges. I met these children a month before i left they had lost their parents just three months ago.They were all in bad shape i thought that they are all HIV positive but out of three one of them turned out positive. I was hoping to pay school fees for them but for some reasons i was not able to do it. I even tried to get them to some schools where they pay school fees for orphans but they were about age they consider. Right now the olderest is trying hard so that they can get what to eat what to put on and even the education for the young ones which is not easy. Life is hard and unfair for them.
