I heard a child cry, I looked around for a moment I thought it was all in my head because no one around seemed concerned. People moved up and down but no one heard the loud voice of the child’s cry. I followed the little one’s voice and almost cried at sight of the neglected baby, A small boy who seemed to be the child’s brother was trying to feed his baby sister from the bottle but the she kept crying. The boy kept wiping of tears from his face and his sister’s. He looked desperate for help as he tried everything he could to cheer up his baby sister. He kept looking at one lady who was lost in a phone conversation just some few meters away from them. His eyes were watery and his face was clearly calling for help, He dropped the bottle and tried singing as he rubbed his baby sister’s chest whose body had turned red from crying for a long time. 

As I walked around to where they were, another child came running with a wet towel she ran past me and stopped where the brother and sister where and the brother kept rubbing gentle his sister.
