This place touched my heart in a way that nothing else possibly could. The impact that the children and their families have had on me is indescribable. The connection grows instantly when a child runs up and wraps their arms around you. The feeling of the need to help these children is overwhelming, my heart just ached to stay and turn these children’s lives around because the things they have gone through and are going through is impossible to ignore. Being able to donate enough money for a child to have a proper heart surgery is an amazing thing to be able to do. One can’t fix a whole country but by helping a single person one can change their lives. We can change their lives as much as they change ours. Being here has changed the view I have on life and has made my heart so much bigger. There’s no doubt this isn’t the last time I will come here and have more to share and more to grow.
