Chapter 13 Followed
- St. Felicity's Center for Visually Impaired Children was a very small establishment that survived on donations from a few people like myself. There were two buildings facing each other. One of them had three classrooms and a small dining room. The other had toilets, a common room and the offices. Behind the classroom building was a playground with several games and there was a wall fence made of red bricks and sand. The school enrolled mostly preschool children and helped them learn enough to start school.
- Most people never realized it but a lot of children with disabilities were abandoned in the streets almost every day. Some were left at the doors of shelters and orphaned children’s home because their parents were afraid of the costs of taking care of them. Others could not access education because a lot of people were ignorant of schools with special needs education which were very few and couldn’t cater for all those who got enrolled there. They did not realize that these were just like other children and deserved as much love, even more. You’d be surprised that even in this century, there were people who made fun of these children.
