The start of Week 3

Spread the love

Picture 72For the start of week 3, participants from separate nations (big welcome to our Denmark participants!!) had their eyes opened today as a result of coming face to face with abject poverty. The two teams started out their trip with an awareness tour. They visited worksites and villages that they will be helping throughout the next ten days. For many, this was their first experience in a developing country, and it came as a shock to see that what we take for granted on a daily basis, others strive to have. There are debriefing sessions every day to discuss the impressions left and feelings felt. Tonight, groups are gathered around the resort discussing our lifestyles compared to those that are seen in this country. How is it that we live in countries so full of wealth and abundance, while others must live each day deciding which of their children gets to eat?
