“Get on my motorbike”
This story takes its title from the name of a beautiful love song by a famous band from 80s.In our caseit tells the story of a family – young parents and their two children- who, after living on the streets, now have a decent place to call home. They travel the city’s streets on a moto-taxi, either to work, to pick up the children from school or to go on day trips around the city. “Get on my motorbike” is a story of hope and a loving display of how the providence does not forget the poor. One day Raúl came into one of the parish’s dining rooms, with his wife and two children. He wanted me to put him on the list of diners as he was new to the area and needed help because he was living on the streets. A few days later we decided to invite him and his family to stay temporarily in one of the spaces we’d improvised in the parish for such cases. They stayed for about two months. He also asked us to help him update his driver’s license as he’d previously driven a moto-taxi, which is very common in the area.
