By Jacob Oluoch
A group of well-wishers in Kisumu County are calling on well-wishers to assist them in rescuing three young children living in deplorable condition with a mentally ill mother.
The group led by Anne Ogutu says that the three children aged one, two and four years are reportedly feeding on Ugali and salt made by the mentally ill mother or food from well-wishers.
Ogutu says that the four year is reportedly also forced to go to Kisumu town to beg for food to bring back to his sick mother and two siblings.
“I got her case from Fatuma and I decided to come along with my friend Peter Oyoo. I talked to her (the mother) and I realized that she is mentally challenged. They are living in a bad Environment, swampy, the house is not in good Condition and she has small kids. They also feed from Ugali served with salt,” said Ogutu.
Ogutu says that the children and their mother have been living in the deplorable condition for two years now.
“Sometimes I do assist them with what I have. So today, I called Anne if we can find a way of helping this lady together with the kids,”Fatuma a neighbour who called the well-wishers added.
