Yesterday, as i was coming from my shop i kept wondering what am going to eat when i get home, i saw a young girl around 15years old who went around hawking. She was selling vegetables.. i was so drawn to her and i called her, and asked her why she was doing this around past 7. Then she said she live with her two siblings and she has to do it for them to survive in the house. She's an orphan, and her relatives aren't doing anything about them. I was so touched that i dipped my hands into my purse and gave her some money.
