Hundreds of children are going to school hungry, exhausted and poorly clothed because their parents are so strapped for cash. Starving pupils dressed in threadbare clothes and shabby shoes stealing food from classmates - it sounds like a scene from a horror movie, but this is the reality of life, there has been an increase in the number of pupils turning up to school without having eaten breakfast or the night before.
Some are so hungry they have resorted to stealing food off others, some even stealing extra for later as their whole family are hungry.
This is because they earn so little it is a daily struggle just to keep a roof over their children’s heads, with living expenses going up and jobs getting cut on a regular basis. These children already suffers so much, when they get to school they get teased and bullied for not wearing the correct uniform and not having the necessary school needs, please help me make a change in a child’s life.
