COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS
I was deeply touched by Onkarabile Mamorobela’s plight (Hooked up for life, 1 February). The life of every child is supposed to be one of freedom and movement, but Onkarabile is leading a frustrating and miserable life because her condition restricts her mobility.
To make matters worse, the little girl’s mother is also affected by her disease as she can’t go out to earn a living. Mothers who have healthy children must consider themselves blessed – for they can leave
their houses to go to work while their children are at school.
Before we complain, we need to consider our blessings. Chief among our blessings is to be in good health. No parent can be happy when their child is sick. May the Almighty extend His blessed hand and heal Onkarabile and other kids whose mobility is restricted by their ill health. E KUBU, EMAIL
