As the African proverb goes, it takes a village to raise a child, but to some people this is just a dream foreign.
A single man who is not only raising just one child, but seven of them.
I kid you not.
This man is single-handedly Raising seven children, of whom the last two are twins who are just nine months old.
A couple of months ago, this man was living together with his wife, but the couple mysteriously separated.
Why did the mother leave her seven children and how is this man raising them single-handedly?
This is history.
I’m a father of seven children.
I had five children before we got the last twins.
We spent a month and a half in hospital and I came home with my wife.
We spent another two and a half months together thereafter before she left.
Donut has never had an easy life, but when she was living with his wife, his life was not as tough as it is today.
He’s a professional barber and was able to go to work every day while his wife would be taking care of their young children.
He was able to pay the school fees of his children and he would easily pay the rent.
But one day everything changed.
He woke up and went to work as usual, but when he came back home he couldn’t find his wife foreign would come back, so that she had covered some- some of her clothes and some money.
He started to worry about the nature of our departure, which looked very suspicious.
I thought she had just gone somewhere and we’ll be back, but when I caught her phone it was off.
I thought that the battery had died and I started to look for her because she had left children in the house without informing me.
I couldn’t find her, but I asked some people and they told me that they saw her going.
I thought we kept our money and I couldn’t find any.
That’s when I realized that she might have left for good.
That robot man went straight to the bus station thinking that he might be lucky to find her, because her bus departed, but unlucky for him, he had some very strange news and his life has never been the same again.
I went to look for her at the bus station and people told me that they saw her boarding a bus heading to Burundi.
That’s when I realized that she returned to her home.
It was tough for me to comprehend.
Because of the struggle of raising my young children alone, it was very stressful to find them something to drink, even because I had limited money.
I had spent most of the money at the hospital when she was delivering
And I was having very little money at this particular moment to take care of the Twins and other children.
Even paying rent was a very big problem.
It took time for Donna to fully accept the fact that his wife, who probably never come back again.
He remained with very tough options.
First, he thought about dropping his older children out of school to take care of their young siblings.
This option was harsh to the children, so he dropped it.
But the alternative was carrier, even though he chose it anyway.
He had to become a full-time caretaker of his children, at the same time finding a way to keep his job foreign, as his boss fed him after he started to go to work so late with limited options, it’s no longer a miracle for this month to go to the streets to beg something he had never thought about throughout his whole life.
He only did it because it was the very last resort foreign since the day she left.
The pair has never talked to each other.
Donut and his family are living in a very small house of just a single bedroom and a living room are being fired.
He tried to start a small barber shop at his house to make some little money, even though he doesn’t make much money to keep up with his expenses.
For instance, he has not paid his rent for the past three and a half months.
Um, foreign children are aware that their mother has left them, while the young ones just don’t know about it.
He always told them that they’ll be able to see their mother as she will be back, and that helps to calm them.
His main wish would be to have his own house so that he can have a better chance of raising his children much easier.
I live on a rent.
If I can be lucky enough to have my own house and a few materials to start my own barber shop, I can raise my children using my skills, thus my biggest wish.
I have two children who should be attending school, but they are not even those who are now attending school.
I struggle to provide them with the basics, including school fees and other necessities.
If I can find my own house, it would be a big relief and I would be able to send my children to school, and raising my younger twins would be much easier.
