There's just me left in the living room watching Comic Relief. They're talking about how hunger kills children every day in Africa.
They show a film of a young couple who's son Vincent is dying from hunger. He's 4 years old. His parents have spent approximately a months wages on a taxi to get him to hospital. Vincent has anaemia and needs blood but it's 2 hours away. His parents look after him tenderly. The nurse shakes his head. Eventually the blood arrives but sadly at 10pm, one night in Africa, Vincent dies.
Tears stream down my face. My own son is healthy, warm and well fed. Others aren't so lucky.
I count my blessings and hope that my small donation will help in some way. If one child survives it will be worth it
I wimp out. I can't watch anymore. It's too upsetting. I turn off the TV.
