Title

Filthy conditions outside the St. Patrick place of safety in Rae Town

Description

"Is this what we want for our kids in the international year of the child? The 38 boys being housed at the St. Patrick's Place of Safety in Rae Town have to suffer daily from the stench, mosquito bites and flies are bred by this stagnant pool that runs almost the entire length of the premises. Here one of the youngsters attempts to retrieve his ball, which fell over the fence into the water during a game with the others, who are watching."
