What eyes are to the blind,
Limbs are to the handicapped;

What water is to the thirsty,
Food is to the starved;

What parents are to the orphans,
Children are to the childless;

What husband is to a widow,
Home is to the homeless;

What love is to the neglected,
Money is to the poor;

What literacy is to the illeterates,
Knowledge is to the seeker;
