A personal, face-to-face conversation with a young woman who spent four years enslaved by the LRA; mile after mile after mile of unrelenting poverty; the smells of open-running sewage running alongside people’s “homes”; a small hand creeping into yours as you walk through a refugee camp – you will never really comprehend poverty and orphans until you experience them in person. TV can’t show you. Books can’t tell you. Your imagination can’t envision it. Reality for 75% of the world’s population is not the same as reality in your home town or city.
Go hug abandoned babies. Relieve a tired worker. Read with an orphan. Dig fence post holes. Use your vacation time this year to make a difference. Have your own extreme adventure. Go on a Hero Holiday!
