Soft Toy Drive

The association for the accompanying spouses and family has organised a toy drive for some local charities.  I despatched Marius to buy something suitable while he was doing the grocery shopping (usually we do this together but yesterday morning I was not well enough to go out).  These two heroes were selected by my tough, scary husband:

The toys are for children in an orphanage who do not have a legal identity.  Many children around the world are not formally recognised by the government of the country they were born in - or any other.  They are state-less and right-less.

Very sweet! It's a kind thing to do for children who have no official existence.
Hope you're feeling stronger today.

How can such a condition even exist? A rhetorical question, for we all know the how of it. What fine companions these fellows will make. xo

I hope a toy gives them something to love, but the real issue is the lack of legal identity. I never heard of such a thing before.

I did not know. Of course it stands to reason that there are those who would do this.
