Safety in School

We have a problem that could use your advice. Something tragic occurred at my old school. A little girl at the school fell from the 4th floor to the ground. She was disfigured and her skull was fractured. She was brought to the hospital, as is usual in Bukavu and she is in intensive care. Her family has nothing. She has just enough to eat and very little left to pay. They asked everyone from school to share with her family and sought a donation from the college. But that is nothing. Each student pays the national insurance society 50,000 Congolese francs, which is not even a third of the whole sum. This student was punished by the director of discipline. She was required to clean a huge corridor instead of spending time in class. She has vertigo, which is how she fell.

Bonjour, Est-ce que des

Bonjour,

Est-ce que des mesures ont été prises contre le directeur de discipline qui a infligé cette punition stupide et dangereuse? Et y a -t-il un moyen de s'assurer que de telles punitions ne soient plus prises?

Et surtout: comment va cette jeune fille aujourd'hui?
Bon courage à elle et à sa famille,

Aurore

SO SORRY

Oh dear. this is sad! The principal should be charged for this. I hope the girl is receiving some form of treatment at least. Are there any groups, charity groups, women groups, that could help her. Can some money be raised to help her and her family get through this trying time of their lives. I do hope they are able to be of help to her.

Your Truly,

Desolé

Ma chère Cikwanine,
Ton histoire est vraiment triste. C’est clair que les services de santé et le système à l’école manquent quelques choses importantes. Il doit exister les procédures spécifiques avec qui les familles pauvres peuvent payer les factures de soins médicaux. Ce n’est pas juste punir la petite fille pour les choses qu’elle ne peut pas changer.
