Poverty

VinMabel Women Comprehensive Health Foundation's Interaction with Mrs. Ugonne Elizabeth, her bitter view about poverty.

I know poverty because poverty was there before I was born and it has become part of life like the blood through my veins. Poverty is not going empty for a single day and getting something to eat the next day. Poverty is going empty with no hope for the future. Poverty is getting nobody to feel your pain and poverty is when your dreams go in vain because nobody is there to help you. Poverty is watching your mothers; fathers, brothers and sisters die in pain and in sorrow just because they couldn’t afford a pain medication. Poverty is hearing your grandmothers and grandfathers cry out, to death to come and take them because they are tired of this world.

Poverty is watching your own children and grandchildren die in your arms but there is nothing you can do. Poverty is watching your children and grandchildren in tears in their deepest sleep. Poverty is suffering from HIV/AIDS and other comprehensive health problems and dying a shameful death because of no medical care and help. "Poverty is when you hide your face and wish nobody could see you just because you feel less than a human being. Poverty is when you dream of bread and fish you never seeing in the day light. Poverty is when people accuse you and prosecutes you for no fault of yours but who is there to say something for you? Poverty is when the hopes of your fathers and grandfathers just vanish within a blink of an eye. I know poverty and I know poverty just like I know my father’s name. Poverty never sleeps. Poverty works all day and night. Poverty never takes a holiday" There is poverty in Africa but Africa has almost all it takes to be the richest continent on earth. The major problem facing Africa today is corruption and poor leadership. There are greedy people in Africa including our leaders who don’t care about their poor mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters.

Some people are too greedy and that is why Nigeria remains poor. People are killing their own brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers just to make money. People didn’t care about yesterday and people don’t even care about tomorrow. All they care about is money and money and that is why Africa remains poor.

All African leaders are corrupt in one way or the other. They come as saints and leave as devils. An African president of a country is a president for a few selected people. An African president is a president for only the educated and a president for only those in the higher class. An African president sees no poverty. An African president sees no hunger. An African president cares not about good health system, because they have all it takes to fly abroad for treatment when they and their families are sick. An African president knows no orphan.

African president/leaders show no mercy. An African presidents/leaders sees only money and money and nothing but money. Not just the African president but the African prime minister, the African governor, the African Doctor, the African Judge, the African lawyer, the African King, and even the African Pastor. And that is why Africa is still poor and that is why Africa continues to allow in poverty.

Fact finding;

She has really witnessed and tested poverty in so many ways.

She has buried 4 of her children, because her husband had so many lands, their kinsmen bent on destroying all her children so they can acquire the lands. They forbade her from selling the lands to help herself. She has suffered all kinds of illness. It is only God's Love that kept her going. This kind of cases interested VinMabel Women Comprehensive Health Foundation: If you know somebody that has similar problems as Elizabeth, refer them to us. It is our pleasure to take care of women that have no families or children. JOIN US TODAY AND MAKE THE GREAT PROGRESS.
