it is the last thing you would expect to see a ‘Chokoraa’ hardened by the street and Kanjos breaking uncontrollably in tears after seeing the plight of another Kenyan by the name Gladys kamande.
They are bottom of the society, despised, looked down upon and even sometimes preyed upon, everywhere they go abuses are hurled their way and slowly some of these street urchins have embraced their ‘titles’ and become public nuisance sniffing glue, sleeping rough and engaging in crimes.
So it is the last thing you would expect to see a ‘Chokoraa’ hardened by the street and Kanjos breaking uncontrollably in tears after seeing the plight of another Kenyan by the name Gladys kamande.
Kamande 32, suffers shortness of breath and has been diagnosed with collapsed lungs and therefore fully relies on an oxygen concentrator, oxygen cylinders and a generator to breath.
A young homeless young Kenyan happened to be walking by asking for help from motorists. When he met Gladys who was stuck in traffic on her way to Kenyatta hospital.
He was about to introduce himself when he saw her carrying weighty equipment and curious as cat the homeless young man asked her what they were for.
When Kamande politely explained they were supplying oxygen to her body, the young man broke down in tears uncontrollably.
He could not imagine what she had to go through daily and for a moment he saw himself way better than he thought.
He deeply sympathized with Gladys kamande’s plight.
But the fact that he didn't have any means of changing Gladys circumstances made him even sadder. He got hold of Gladys' hand and made a silent prayer- that God may provide all she could need for her treatment.
Puzzled onlookers had to reassure him that all was going to be fine with Gladys as he wept uncontrollably.
Gladys requires Kshs.7M to undergo an operation to treat her condition and Kenyans can support her plight through sending any amount of cash to aid her treatment bill: through Paybill Number: 891300, Account Name: GLADYS or send MPESA to Mobile Number: 0716 338018 (Wambui Kamande)
