How many use the bible and the name of God to exploit persons with disability

Posted April 22, 2021 from Cameroon

I wonder why people love using PWDs to creat wealth for themselves.

I am a visually impaired lady who happens to be a communications officer in an association called Womens Amputee Football Association Cameroon WAFAC. We went into contact with some officials in the US who loved our project and came over to Cameroon to support us. They discovered that apart from football we had other talents, they took our photos and videos went back to their country and solicited for funds in our names. This funds couldn't reach us. Worse of it all, we were removed from our various homes, some of us were in the chrisis zones, a house have been created and we are inside sleeping on the the floor, no food to eat, abandoned to ourselves. All these in the name of God. I do not know where and whom to run in a corrupt country like ours. Oh God where are you, look down and see what this world is turning into because of money, in your name. When I try to complain they will forward to me bible verses, while already back in their country US enjoying with their children who are valid, I keep asking what become of the vulnerable like me? Please help me out

Oh no! So sorry about this Rika.

Do you have social media handles? Facebook, Twitter?

This can help in raising more awareness about what is going on.

Dear Rikahilda,
I am really sorry for your plight. This is heart-breaking, but I am glad that you found the courage to use your voice to tell us about what is going on in your country.

It is always very unfortunate when people use the name of God to mistreat those who need help most.
Let's hope that the truth will one day get to the people who sent the funds to you.
Thank you for speaking up. All the best to you.
