Save these kids

Children are born to be loved and raised by their parents to the best of their ability.

Children are born to be loved and raised by their parents to the best of their ability.

Unfortunately, this does not seem to be the case with young children whose mothers stay at the Helen Joseph women's hostel in Alexandra.

Children as young as seven are now barred from staying there following complaints that they are naughty and the environment is not suitable for them.

The ban will obviously destroy the bond between mother and child and expose the kids to dangers because of lack of parental guidance.

The local council, which has promised to investigate the matter, should rather turn the hostel into family units instead of introducing regulations that could destroy families.
