Day 2207: Disability in Rural Areas in South Africa

The things I don’t think twice about are things other people pray for – that’s what I keep realizing.


It’s 10 : 48  AM on day 2207 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Proverbs 12:25, have breakfast and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    –raised $7 675 only  $4 825 more to raise to reach my second goal of raising $12 500 for Smile Train before Jan 10 2017 (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far ).


Today I read The triple vulnerability of being poor and disabled in rural South Africa which made me conscious of my own privilege I’m fortunate that whenever I need to go to a doctor my parents can pay for the appointment and drive me there which sadly is not the case for most people with disabilities living in rural areas in South Africa they have to worry about distance and transportation I do hope that the solutions mentioned in the article will be implemented because truly South Africa cannot prosper if a segment of the population feels like the general population doesn’t care about them.
