New Post- Beri’s Story
He is young, handsome, and cute, only 17 years old, endowed by the creator with a beautiful smile that he shares with anyone who comes around! He has been blessed with countless friends and did receive motherly love and care that very few children in his group can afford.
During the past fifteen years, his days have largely been spent in the confines of a one room house. He depends solely on his mother to get food off the plate, into his mouth and yet…he keeps smiling! His life in this one room house has been spent without the visibility of the outside world, not OUT OF HIS OWN VOLITION, but because DISABILITY came cracking at his door.
BERINYUY is the seventh child in a family of seven, lives with his mother in a single room in their neighborhood.
Late last week, a team of staff from Crystal Foundation visited Beri in their home to hand to them diverse gifts received made available by a well-wisher couple for Beri and his family.
Well, the team arrived Beris compound at about 3:15 pm. The team was greeted with tears of joy and profound happiness. Just as we walked closer to the house in which Beri lives, it was the ever-smiling Beri who could not do otherwise, but express deep joy through a very broad smile that stayed on his face for close to an hour. For the first time, Beri now had a flat screen, digital television set and a DVD player for education and entertainment, with a football which he could share with his friends. Physical disability has rendered him almost motionless and has greatly inhibited his mobility. He has spent the past 15 years on a bed and sometimes on a wheel chair. Beri’s mother understands what it takes to love, accept and care for a special needs child. Her experience has been a great lesson for other parents with similar conditions.
With the TV set and DVD player, Beri can now get the entertainment that he badly needs from watching educative movies, music, and games. With the football, Beri can practically enjoy his favorite football game with his friends. You may ask how Beri plays football? Even though he is often planted to the wheelchair, Beri can watch his friends play football. This greatly builds on his psycho-social needs.
In addition, Beri’s mother through the economic empowerment program of Crystal Foundation will receive assorted supplies of basic household needs that would enable her enlarge and run a petty trade.
Special thanks to the young couple that help made all of this possible. Your kind donation has indeed blessed a child and family
