The Lame Dog Syndrome

You know the type. The woman who writes love letters to convicts on death row or to men of habitually vicious criminality. The neighbourhood cat lady who the SPCA finds in a house of 19 cats coated with feces and filth because she can’t turn a stray away.

Fifteen years ago I was involved in assisting the people living in terrible conditions along and within the banks of the Jukskei River in Alexandra. Two mothers approached me and asked “Help us please.” I have never forgotten this plea.
