“And what we can do is to give their lives hope, and to make it possible for them to realise their dreams. These are all handsome and beautiful children when you see their faces you remember the ones you have in the house.
“We should also take cognizance that any child can fall into this circumstance, so as a Senator representing this Zone, I formally adopt this children as my own, and we will quarterly send support to this home to enable you feed this children and take proper support of them and work on the possibility of their education.
”I will also like to know if there are those of them that have been able to finish their SSCE, and I will sponsor two children to China to study, so that these two children will serve as beacon of hope to others that will be able to support.
”So the orphanage should give me two names and they must be those that are here, that you know will make use of the resources that will be invested in their education.”
