Interests
In some tribes of the Omo River Valley in southwestern Ethiopia, certain children
are considered Mingi (Impure, Ritually polluted)

Reasons for being declared Mingi are:
Being born out of wedlock.
Being the result of an unplanned pregnancy.
Being born a twin.
Being born with some sort of deformity or imperfection.
Having one's genitals injured in some way.
Having ones teeth develop in the upper jaw before the lower jaw.
Chipping a tooth during childhood.

Children declared Mingi are considered cursed by the spirits.

It is also believed that Mingi children will bring misfortune to
the community if allowed to live.

Children declared Mingi are either abandoned to die or killed.

Mingi children are either drowned, starved, or, in the case of infants,
have dirt stuffed in their mouths so that they choke to death.

Please, please pray that this evil practice stop!

No problem! ^^

It depends...at times I'm living with my parents in the West Midlands, at other times, I'm in Bath living separately. Right now, I'm actually in Yorkshire (near Cumbria) but only staying here until Friday :3. I technically have no *fixed* home, except my parents (obviously, lol), but I'm trying to be independent and not live with them any more.

Oh cool! :meow: I think it's great that you're raising awareness of people's situations in other countries ^_^ That's a very admirable thing indeed ^^. It's just a shame some people don't care about when you pray for them, or even take it an insult :( but I suppose the Bible does tell us about this..

God bless you! :meow:
P.S. Do you like the Lego Movie?
