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

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

Hello dear sis Rika, its so disheartening to hear how much people with disabilities are constantly being exploited in the name of bringing help or projects.
Am sorry you had to go through this. I don't know in which town you are but maybe you could fnd out if there is a coordination unit for association of persons with disabilities where you are and make a report. Please keep safe.
In sisterhood

I am shock and sad to hear your story. Is there any NGO or United Nations people can help? I believe some people in this world may be able to help. Please keep raise the awareness on your situation as much as possible.
May Almighty God bless you all!
