Despite his efforts, there was no improvement in the condition of the three children.

As a result, Sharma and his wife Sarala cannot leave the children alone as they depend fully on their parents.

When Sharma's Muslim neighbours learned about the family's struggles, they came forward to help in the best way they knew.

Neighbours buy new land

The first person to help the family was a neighbour named Ishaq Khan and his family, who offered 300 square yards of land and collected N423,312 for the Sharma family.

Khan's son Latif offered a part of his two lands free of charge. The land has since been registered in the name of the Sharma family.

They are also constructing a room on the land where the Sharma family can live.

Latif's friend Islam and other residents of the locality collected another N423,312 for the Sharma family for the construction of the room.

While the room gets ready, Islam has rented another room for the family for the time being.

Neighbours help evicted family

In a related story, reported that the Singletons had gone through difficult times recently after losing two family members to cancer.

It was, therefore, another blow when it dawned on them that they were set to be evicted from their house on Fisher Street in Warren.

Having rented the house they lived in for 13 years, they were heartbroken to learn that the landlord intended to sell it.

That would have forced them to move out this summer, ejecting the family from a neighbourhood the children have called home since they were young.

"There are so many memories here," revealed one of the children.

They have a lot to thank the neighbours who not only stood by them during the loss of family members but have also joined hands to ensure they are not evicted from their house.
