A Rescue By Tr Monica

One day after school while i was going home with my friends. We were running so fast than the fastest house since the rain was nearly to rain and we wanted the rain to get us home. Within a twinkle of an eye I fell down and my knee and right hand was serously injured and the blood was coming out so fast so my friends took me home but i did not find anybody Because the rain was nearly to rain my friends decided to live me me and to start to walk towards their homes. After some times my guardians came back and i told them that i was hurt. but they did not take it as serious matter and they told me that i was fighting in school. The following day i went to school and i told our school worker abd because it was painful i was explaining while crying. She told me to stop crying because that is how orphans are treated. She even took me to te hospital and she almost spent one thousand and fifty shillings for dressing everyday. If she could have not been there I could now be teaching myself how to write using left hand. I thanked her very much and even i pray that God may help her to continue with good treat to help orphans and children.
