A Woman with a heart of Gold
On the 18th of September 2012, NTV Uganda aired a programme entitled @ Life Stories" and they showed the life of Mary kabito a mother of four children with physical, intellectual and multiple disabilities. This lady is a grade four teacher and she was not conceiving for many year after she got married. When she conceived and gave birth to her first children, she was not so broken and she had hope that maybe the second child will be normal.
Unfortunately for her the next three children all had the same disabilities. Mary decided to sit a home and look after her children. She decided to learn how to address their needs and she how best she can improve their lives. She was told that physiotherapy is good for them and everyday she has a programme for them where she massages their legs and muscles. Mary is now looking after 40 children in her home who have all sorts of disabilities. When i watched this programme my heart was so broken. And i was so thankful to God for the life that i had. Many times we take our lives for granted but when we see women like Mary who have so many hurdles ahead of them but they are so happy we should thank God for them. Mary is a woman with a big heart. Other women would have either killed these children or damped them at an orphanage. But she has even go head to look after more disabled children. My husband has pledged to sponsor at least two of the children in Mary's home. So if you are out there and you feel you want to help this lady please do she is willing to accept all forms of support. Think of Mary and the children she is helping. God Bless you all.
