Things are happening

Have I told you about our Russian trustee? Let's call her Nina (becuase the only other Russian woman I know is called Nina).

She knows the grandmother of the little boy being abused by our neighbours. The grandmother lives in the Ukraine and phones Nina to check up on her grandchild as the parents won't let her speak to the boy himself.

I have told Nina about what's been happening as I needed to get the parents' telephone numbers from her. She is very distressed about it, and last night, when the boy's grandfather called, she told him the latest developments (i.e. nothing has been done because nobody seems to want to help). He broke down in tears and sobbed, especially when Nina told him she'd spoken to the boy and asked him if he wanted to go home to the Ukraine to his grandparents. He answered quietly, "Yes. Please!"

So the grandfather called the Ukranian embassy in Pretoria, and they are sending someone to come and meet the boy and talk to him tomorrow morning at 9am, to try and get him returned to his grandparents. Nina would like TSC and I to be there as witnesses. I don't think I'll be able to be there, but TSC will.

Let's hope something happens. Frankly, the whole thing scares me. The boy's father has been yelling at Nina and threatening her. I would like to see him behind bars.

Tyger Katt said...

I read this and the other entry linked to it.

It's obvious that everyone who reads this will be horrified by what has happened to that poor child but... what I really want to say is good on you and TSC.

It's when I read about good people making a difference that I have tons of hope for this country.

Now we just have to figure out how to clone you guys. ;-)

Shania said...

I can only imagine the good karma you're earning! I do hope that child gets some help. I've been in your situation and I know how frustrating it is.

Miss Caught Up said...

AlasMyDear said...

oh dear, i hope this all works out well for the little boy. still, seems like you guys are doing a great job so far!

The Blonde Blogshell said...

I think you are very brave and incredible!
Not many people would care! Most of them would just turn their backs on it and pretend as if it doesn't exist because they don't want to get involved!!

WELL DONE!!
