The Eyes of a Wayuu

We can see the hurt in their eyes.  Their skin is proof of the sun that they received every day because they don’t have a roof, or they are forced to spend many hours in the sun. These kids need help. They need someone to take better care of them.  We can see in their faces their hopes, their wish to be helped. Their need for clean water, food, and shelter. We should help them give them hope that the world is not like the one they live in…that it is beautiful…that eyes shine not because of tears, but because of happiness. We as a world community should help others in need. We can make campaigns to collect money to provide them all those resources that they need. We have more than what we need, so let’s share.
