My experience in Ethiopia is so hard to describe. Throughout my time in Ethiopia I wrote down single words that help me to better understand and illustrate the work of Canadian Humanitarian, the staff, the children and the families in Ethiopia. Their goals and expectations for the children are no different than what we have for our children in Canada. My experience has been powerful and simply life changing. I made a commitment to one of the moms during our home visit and told her although we would be going back home that did not mean we would stop working for her family. There are many other children in the community that need our help. I plan to be part of the change and keep the powerful words in my mind when I think I, just one person, can’t make a difference. I can and I will.
