Where Will The Children Go?

I wish I hadnt read this.

From BBC:

There is nobody to take five-year-old Zafar Khan home when doctors declare him fit to leave the dank and smelly hospital ward that has been his home for the past week.

The medics have very few clues about the family of this wounded boy who was airlifted to a hospital in Srinagar, summer capital of Indian-administered Kashmir, from his quake devastated village in Uri.

What they do know from some of the boy’s neighbours who are attending to their injured relatives in the same hospital is that Zafar’s father died in last Saturday’s earthquake which razed Dalanja village in Uri to the ground.

They also know that Zafar’s mother is nearly blind and largely immobile, and that the boy has two brothers who are called Sajjad and Nissar.

That is where Zafar’s story ends.

    Such an innocent age. My heart aches at the thought of how he is going to spend the rest of his life. Cant understand what was God’s hikmat in it but I pray that he is helped in every possible way.
