Single Father Of 7 Begs In Street After His Boss Fires Him For Arriving Late To Work
A father is struggling to feed his children and take them to school as he has no source of income.
His boss unceremoniously fired Byago Donat for arriving late to work while he was taking care of his little ones.
“I am a father of seven children. I had five before we got the last two who are twins. We spent a month and a half in the hospital and I came home with my wife. We spent another two and a half months together before she left,” the man said.
He recalled arriving home from work one day to find the little ones alone.
She left when the twins, who had breastfed for a short period, were just four months old without notice.
Donat thought she would come back, but when he saw she had taken money and clothes, he was worried about the nature of her departure.
“When I called her phone, it was off and I thought her battery had died. I started looking for her and went straight to the bus station hoping to reunite with her but people told me her bus had left,” he recalled.
Donat struggled to balance family with work as the parenting burden was heavy on his shoulders.
He even thought of having two kids drop out of school to help him care for the little ones, but he changed his mind. Ultimately, his work suffered as his employer released him for being inconsistent.
In desperation, he started begging in the streets, hoping for a few coins to pay rent and buy food for his family.
