Yetimhanedeki çocuklara bazı sorular sorup benim için yanıtlamalarını istemiştim onları daha iyi anlamak için. Ailelerini ve Kinship House Yetimhanesine nasıl geldiklerini de merak etmiştim. Güzelce anlatmişlar. Uncle Ben’i -Ben Amca ki kendisi yetimhanenin kurucusu melek kişi- nasıl bulduklarından da bahsetmişler. Ingilizcelerini çok gerekmedikçe düzeltmedim. Hikayeler genelde birbirine benziyor. Anne baba AIDSden ölmüş, büyükanne büyükbaba çocuklara bakmaya çalışmış, ama Uganda’da ortalama bir ailede 7 çocuk olduğunu düşünürsek, tabii ki maddi güç yetmemiş, Ben Amca yetimi almış getirmiş, çocuklar kardeşleri aileleri nerede pek haberdar değiller. Olsa da faydası yok.
Burda dikkat çekmek istediğim bir kaç konu var:
1- AIDSe burada “Büyükanne Hastalığı” da diyorlar. Çünkü ebeveynlerden birine bulaştığı zaman diğerinin kurtuluşu yok. Hem anne hem de baba öldüğü için yetime bakmak büyükanneye düşüyor.
2-Annem babam kanserden öldü diyorsa bir yetim, o AIDS demek. Ortaya çıkmadığı sürece AIDS demek istemiyorlar. Ama hem annenin hem babanın kanserden kısa aralıklarla ölmesi mi daha yüksek olasılık, yoksa AIDS’den mi?

Yetimhanede 25 çocuk ve onlara karşı sevgi ve sabır dolu Ben Amcaları var. Yetimhaneye yardım etmeme yardım edenler oldu... Bir de onlar var. Bir de yardım etmeme yardım edenler sayesinde ben varım :)
