Just responded to the TV appeal for aid in Eastern Congo, donated £20, whatever that’s worth in this ‘credit crunch.’ Can’t get the image of a little boy of 6 or 7, carrying a sack, of what I presume are his only belongings, to fade from my mind. But it’s the look of total fear and dejection on his face, that already haunts me, a little boy lost and alone, trying to survive. It is heartbreaking.
What kind of world is it we are living in? What can we do, better still what can I do?
Making a donation is something, but not enough, and I feel just so helpless and useless…
