Charity For Humanity

Charity For Humanity. It was abramped that the mother of my friend kicked the bucket on 27th Oct 2007. My friend and i were seating the K.C.P.E national examination. my friend had a sister who was only six months of age. Her father was a person of no directions and virtues.He was drunkered and more of it i could describe him as a repist. This was because of that juncture he was being sought for a rape case.He had raped a two year old girl in the plot and disappeared. Here now the two were now desperate.I actually felt for them because i understood the pain of being an orphan. especially at a tender age. The school and the church that we used to attend made arrangment for the burrial.the family had remained with nobody to cater for the other. After the burial, i personally promised to take the burden of caring for the child who was really very young despite i being a student. It was not an easy task but i took it with all passion i faced challenges but thank God because i succeeded.After the K..P.E i took my friend and stayed with in the same house with my mum the i understood that charity to humanity is servize to God.If i didn't take them now would the young child be?
