Estifanos is a young man who is volunteering the diabetic patients. he came last Saturday to have discussion over coffee with peace and Green members.
He lives with diabetic since he was a small child. I saw him last time when we walked to raise fund for the patients. He was one of the speakers.
He shared his ideas with the volunteer team. I walked to him before I left the place just to ask him what he feels like, and to know where he lives.
He told me with a smile; "I don't have time to meet people. I don't have a place to stay...let me tell you that I was a street child. I was used by pick pockets. I lived on the streets, and now I'm carrying my medical kits, I know how to inject myself...
I was shocked, but pretended i was not surprised. I told him; " I meet one business man in Nairobi last October who was a street child on the roads of Mozambique. You'll overcome this and you'll be somebody."
He is a dreamer. He traveled to Switzerland and...he wants to educate himself and do something great for his own country. He is working in a small shop and the owner of the shop let him sleep there and give him food.
This young man sent me an email right now while I'm writing his story. let me copy it and paste it here.
His story briefly as he email me earlier:
I'm not sure where I was born, but I've been in the street for 7 years. I'm 20 years old and I'm 20 years old with sugar.
I was stranded and forced to cross the Sudan through my first trip to Madrid. I had lost a friend on the road. I had lost a friend on the road. My thumb was so heavy that I was forced to drink my urine. Sudan Dashey left to go to Libya for fishing boats and I lost sight of SUDAN when I was starving. We started returning home and returned to Ethiopia for a 12-day holiday trip to Gonder in Gondar
After going to Gondar 2 days I headed back to Addis A new way of life began when I arrived in Ethiopia 15 days ago by a broker I traveled to Kenya but this trip was on a motorbike and I was arrested by my friends and my friends as a 4-day prisoner. Back ......
I was upstairs in the middle of this movie .... Government Hospital I was better, but I was passionate about it. I tried to swallow myself differently. I drank too much, got up, took too much insulin, got a car, etc. But I did not. ... I continued to go back to the path I once became an A member of the Diabetes Association of Ethiopia, I got help .....
Then I looked for my family ... I was able to find my grandparents in the town of Tulu Bolo, in the Oromia region of Oromia. However, I did not want to accept it. Change began to dawn.
Right now, I am working in a store, and my sugar is fine ... Thank you, Stephen, a little bit of my life.
You can get his contacts from me, if anybody who wants to help this boy.
