• Starving Child Abandoned because of "Witchcraft" rescued by Aid Worker

    A two-year-old boy was rescued from the streets of Nigeria. He was kicked out of his home after his family accused of him of being a witch. For eight months, the toddler wandered the streets alone, surviving on scraps. The emaciated child, whose stomach was riddled with worms, was found by Danish aid worker Anja Ringgren Lovén, who offered him biscuits to eat and fed him bottled water. Her act of kindness was captured on camera and that image has circulated on social media and news sites around the world. Anja then wrapped the frail child, who she’s called Hope, in a blanket and took him to the nearest hospital. After a blood transfusion and treatment to get rid of the worms, Anja brought him into the African Children’s Aid Education and Development Foundation – a safe house for children s...

  • SOUTH AFRICA: UNEMPLOYED & HOMELESS PROBLEMS

    Afrikaans/Eng/Nat The homeless problem in South Africa used to be a problem that was confined to black people only. Now things are very different. Today, on the eve of South Africa's second all-race elections, stripped of their rights under apartheid, some whites find themselves in the same boat as their poor black compatriots. For some white people, begging is the only way out. Under the old political system their jobs were protected by law simply because they were white. That has changed. Today, everyone competes equally for the same jobs. For many whites, the 1994 elections changed their lives for the worse. Without legal protection for employment, they lost their competitive edge in the labour market and became redundant. SOUNDBITE: (Afrikaans) "For me t...

  • Homeless Children in Africa

    One of South Africa's most pressing problems is the provision of suitable shelter for the huge numbers of people living in shacks in the sprawling settlements. There are many children and youth living on the streets suffer from poor health, malnutrition, physical violence, psychological trauma, and the hostility of the public. They enter adulthood with little education, training or means of supporting themselves other than what they have learned from the hardships of street life. These kids could be the next Albert Einstein, president Obama or even Mark zuckerberg. You never know. They really need your help in providing a shelter for them. Every dollar counts. http://www.gofundme.com/2jzoiw

  • SOUTH AFRICA: HOMELESS PROBLEM

    Eng/Nat President Nelson Mandela has admitted he 's failed to deliver on election promises to South Africa's homeless. Nine months after he was swept to power, Mandela says his government is trying to ease the massive housing shortage - but warned slum squatters to be patient. Eight (m) million homeless South Africans could get a roof over their heads following a scheme announced by Housing Minister Joe Slovo. The subsidy plan got the go-ahead at the government's weekly cabinet meeting on Wednesday night. The scheme is now up for discussion before it comes into effect. It would mean that about 70 percent of South Africans - all those who earn less than R1500 (US$429) a month - will qualify for a housing subsidy of between R12000 (US$3429) and R15000 (US$4286). ...

A two-year-old boy was rescued from the streets of Nigeria. He was kicked out of his home after his family accused of him of being a witch. For eight months, the toddler wandered the streets alone, surviving on scraps. The emaciated child, whose stomach was riddled with worms, was found by Danish aid worker Anja Ringgren Lovén, who offered him biscuits to eat and fed him bottled water. Her act of kindness was captured on camera and that image has circulated on social media and news sites around the world. Anja then wrapped the frail child, who she’s called Hope, in a blanket and took him to the nearest hospital. After a blood transfusion and treatment to get rid of the worms, Anja brought him into the African Children’s Aid Education and Development Foundation – a safe house for children she founded with her husband. "When we heard that the child was only 2 to 3 years old, we did not hesitate," Lovén told Huffington Post UK. "A child that young cannot survive a long time alone on the streets. We immediately prepared a rescue mission." At the time of his rescue, the skeletal child was in critical condition, said Lovén, founder of the African Children's Aid Education and Development Foundation (ACAEDF). “Thousands of children are being accused of being witches and we’ve both seen torture of children, dead children and frightened children," she wrote. "This footage shows why I fight." Belief in witchcraft is widespread in parts of Africa, according to United Nations Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF). In 2010, the agency warned that a growing number of adults and children were being accused of witchcraft, leading to killings and shunning. Those most at risk, UNICEF noted, were boys who displayed a "solitary temperament, physical deformities or conditions such as autism." "Many social and economic pressures, including conflict, poverty, urbanization and the weakening of communities, or HIV/AIDS, seem to have contributed to the recent increase in witchcraft accusations against children," UNICEF Regional Child Protection Adviser Joachim Theis said. "Child witchcraft accusations are part of a rising tide of child abuse, violence and neglect, and they are manifestations of deeper social problems affecting society." A British documentary about child witch hysteria said exact figures were hard to come by, but estimated that in the southwestern Nigerian state of Akwa Ibom — where the toddler was recently rescued — there were about 15,000 children who had been labeled witches and abandoned on the streets. Lovén said she decided to call the rescued boy "Hope," and she requested donations to help pay for his hospital bills. In only two days, she subsequently reported, more than 1 million Danish kroner (or about $150,000 U.S.) had been donated to help the little boy. "With all the money we can besides giving hope the very best treatment now also build a doctor clinic on the new land and save many more children out of torture!" she said. "It's just so great!" Days after the boy's rescue, Lovén wrote on Facebook that Hope's condition had been upgraded to stable. He was receiving a daily blood transfusion to improve his red blood cell count, but he was still suffering from worms that were "giving him some pain," according to Lovén. Despite the difficult recovery, Hope had begun eating, she noted, and had the power to sit up and smile. Over the weekend, Lovén posted photos of the boy looking noticeably healthier and heavier, particularly in his cheeks. He was even photographed with a smile. "Hope is getting so much better," Lovén wrote. "Already gaining a lot of weight and looking so much more healthy. Now we only need him to talk. "But that will come naturally when he is out of the hospital and starting his life among all our children."

SOUNDBITE: (Afrikaans) "For me the doors are closed, no open doors, that's why I'm on the streets because the promises that were made are closed. And now it's going to be closed again." SUPER CAPTION: Johnny Fourie, Homeless Person If it was not for handouts and relief help, Johnny Fourie and James Brown would not make it. Once a day they join a queue for food on Church Square Pretoria once the administrative capital of the apartheid state. Today it has become a haven for many of South Africa's white homeless people. Johnny and James lost their jobs shortly after the 1994 elections and have not been able to find work since. Without work there is no warm bed at night and no guaranteed meals. SOUNDBITE: (Afrikaans) "For whom are you going to vote? Nobody wants to unite. Everybody wants to have their own part. We are going to lost again." SUPER CAPTION: James Brown, Homeless Person For them the struggle of daily living has become a constant search for a safe place to sleep and odd jobs that will put food in their mouths. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The queue is getting longer by the day." SUPER CAPTION: Johan Smit, Salvation Army Official The Salvation Army runs a daily soup kitchen on Church Square. When they started out three years ago, there were only four to five people in their queue and they ran the service twice a week. Today they feed at least thirty people every day.

Eng/Nat President Nelson Mandela has admitted he 's failed to deliver on election promises to South Africa's homeless. Nine months after he was swept to power, Mandela says his government is trying to ease the massive housing shortage - but warned slum squatters to be patient. Eight (m) million homeless South Africans could get a roof over their heads following a scheme announced by Housing Minister Joe Slovo. The subsidy plan got the go-ahead at the government's weekly cabinet meeting on Wednesday night. The scheme is now up for discussion before it comes into effect. It would mean that about 70 percent of South Africans - all those who earn less than R1500 (US$429) a month - will qualify for a housing subsidy of between R12000 (US$3429) and R15000 (US$4286). SOUNDBITE: We are going to set up - if you finish reading your white paper - institutions, capitalised initially by the state, which are going to help people on the ground to help themselves with state help. SUPER CAPTION: Joe Slovo, Housing Minister, South Africa. The scheme announced by Slovo, also chairman of the South African Communist Party, will bring affordable housing within reach of the millions who currently live in corrugated iron shacks or make-shift cardboard structures in and around this country's major cities. Earlier this month squatters took over the Claridge Court apartments in downtown Johannesburg. They were evicted on Monday morning. Later that day they tried to reoccupy the building and clashed with police. On Tuesday night the same happened again. In the meantime, all their belongings are stacked along the pavement of one the busiest parts of Johannesburg, and the would-be tenants sleep on bare mattresses outside the apartment block. In Cape Town, the homeless set up shacks which the police are then called to pull down, perpetuating the cycle of homelessness. President Nelson Mandela is not unaware of the crisis facing him, his electorate and his government if the housing situation does not improve. He chose the morning after Slovo announced the housing subsidy scheme to call on some squatter settlements around Johannesburg to reassure residents that the government is trying to deal with the crisis. However, the people's president was quick to warn that the government could not work miracles overnight. He explained he'd had to work with a budget devised by the previous National Party government. SOUNDBITE: I am bringing you disappointment because I can not deliver on the promises we made. But at the same time I am giving you news that in the new budget that we are preparing we are laying the foundation for us to carry out all our promises. SUPER CAPTION: Nelson Mandela, President, South Africa And he appealed to thousands of supporters on the Orange Farm squatter settlement south-west of Johannesburg to be patient.
