REHABILITATION AND PROVISION OF SERVICES AND FACILITIES TO THE WORLDS HURTING CHILDREN, YOUTH, BROKEN FAMILIES AND RELATED MEMBERS OF OUR GLOBAL COMMUNITY
Dated: 9th September 2014
NARRATION AND THE PASSIONATE
A lone voice full of love for humanity is crying to those who can hear and are able to answer her cry.
The lone voice is seated on a hilly point in the middle of the city.
Down below are magnificent buildings, super streets and highways running through and joining this beautiful city with others near and far. Expensive vehicles are running back and forth.
For a moment, the lone voice goes for a rest and in her mind unfolds traumatizing dramas:
Below her, she sees high class restaurants, clubs and hotels full of people and tables full of all kinds of pleasantries. Behind the restaurants are dumpsters full of left-overs but paid for by blessed clientele but all destined for destruction. The diners then leave and enter their expensive vehicles to head to their likewise super residences. There they sleep like well cared for babies.
The following day, the happy life circle continues.
In the midst of the first drama, a secondary one is happening. There are those serving the seated blessed, guards, and all sorts of workers working for and serving a blessed class of humanity. But the workers are not badly off- They are getting wages from the blessed for their services. The lone voice notes with satisfaction that out of the wages the workers are able to at least feed, clothe and give some essentials to their children.
They can at least get some sleep…not too bad!!
The killer drama then unfolds in the midst of all the merry: the love voice is attracted to a certain class of humanity. Amongst this class are children running to garbage dumpsters for the leftovers. At some other corners of the city the lone voice notices numerous youth sniffing and smoking some substances. They become hysterical and some are fighting amongst themselves.
Others are fighting for rotten loaves of bread.
Others are lying down hopelessly, shaggy, dirty and look drunk. Some stride to nearby shelters they call home and the homeless retire under broken down vehicles, park benches or store front doorways.
At some home – like dwellings at the outskirts of the city, the lone voice hears un-ending cries. Many children who ought t be in school are at home with tattered clothes crying of hunger and fighting for substances which look like pieces of waste food and most likely from the garbage dumpsters. Young girls who some ought to be in school, in colleges and work places are wasting in the so called homes, hopelessly looking into the sky. Some are expecting babies from unknown fathers.
The idle young men are busy smoking substances while planning their next source of the mind soothing substances. Stealing from neighourhoods is the norm.
Others have advances in the game, they are planning for more satisfying stealing and their target are those the lone voice encountered in Drama 1 of this presentation: the clientele at the high and super class restaurants and clubs in the high class sections of the city.
Oh humanity Oh humanity!!
The composition of the population in the home like-dwellings is sad to describe.
Broken families resulting to numerous widows, single parents and fatherless children with no hope in life. A full time drunk (from Lord knows what) youth bands who primary sorrow is the source of the next dose of the mind soothing tablets, injections, leaves or anything that can do the “job” to help them forget their nightmare lives. Men of middle and old ages who look like fathers and grandfathers, roles they stopped playing decades ago and whose main occupation is waiting for the last ceremony: dust back to dust!!!
Fatherless children and at some corners parentless children who school or formal education is alien to them.
Young beautiful girls who ought to be in school and in productive activities but who now are home, some pregnant by unknown fathers with many practicing “domestic” prostitution and the “graduates” venturing into the city centre to try their luck in the “trade” there. Many of the girls are customers to the drug peddlers as they need to be “high”to gain the courage required in the “trade”. Many end up being misused in the city as drug peddlers, service “tools” at brothels and in other un-imaginable trades.
Dilapidated mothers who some can’t even remember names of the different fathers of their children.
At meeting joints in these dwellings, some elderly men converge some with various tattered documents in their pockets. History is their main occupation but mainly on past wars.
These are the forgotten veterans of wars now languishing in hunger, poverty and hopelessness well displayed on their faces. Sad story: No one bothers to read their discharge papers.
Oh humanity, Oh humanity!!!
The dramas in the lone voice’s mind suddenly stops and in their place comes a soft voice telling her: THE PLAYERS IN THE THIRD AND LAST DRAMA (and duplicated in all corners of this beautiful world) ARE:
- A forgotten class of humanity and by fellow humanity.
- Would be able but now a dormant workforce.
- A source and industry of drug abusers, crime and participants of all kinds of illicit trades and practices.
- Forgotten war veterans.
- Victims of wars.
- Victims of child and human trafficking.
- Forgotten assets to their countries and to the larger humanity etc.
- A threat to peace and order and society.
At that point tears fill the eyes of the lone voice and a bell and a “Hymn” sound in her mind singing “WHAT A SHAME, WHAT A SHAME TO HUMANITY!!
The cries of the lone voice resumes and with increased momentum.
What do I do?? The lone voice ponders!
I feel the calling to do something! But am chained by helplessness!!
But the soft voice in her mind presses on:
Don’t stop crying!!
Those touched and able will come to your aid!
And all those suffering need and require is:
Recognition, Love, Rehabilitation, Restoration, Hope, Education and Training, Exposure and Availing of chances to utilize their skills!!
COME COME COME LOVERS OF HUMANITY!
With your support, the sky is the limit for the class of humanity in reference.
One plus two plus three will at least move the forgotten brethren to the “moon” ready for the “sun” and the SKIES!
This is the cry and passionate APPEAL of one, Monica Deller Swintz, founder and CEO of Bridge of Hope Ministries International (BOHMI), whose head office is in Kamloops, BC, Canada and which is the parent organization to offices in the other countries.

Out of her own life experiences, years of working with children, other humanitarian experiences and her encounters while on BOHMI humanitarian missions at home and beyond, and with a special calling to come to the aid of the disadvantaged referred to in this presentation, Monica developed and created one of a kind programs from her 35 years’ experience specifically tailored for the section of humanity referred herein.
