Friday, September 07. Barbara is very interested in kids and social engagement, so Paul arranged a visit at a children’s home for us. Samuel picked us up from our apartment, and after a relatively short drive we picked up Manuel, who knows the facility. His goal is to visit 40 different children’s homes this year. When Barbara asked him, why he would visit so many, he replied: “To get to know the similarities and differences”. His main goal is “to make the kids smile”. What a wonderful person!
At first we had to findÂ Mums Love Children’s Home, which wasn’t that easy in the slums of Kayole. But we found it! Actually, it looked like all the other sheds from the outside: a wall with iron sheet metal doors. On the inside we went along a corridor to a room with couches and a table, where we sat down with some of the children.
Before we went back home we bought some food for them, which was the least we could do. I cannot tell you how I felt when we left this place. The children sang a beautiful song for us to say goodbye. It was so moving, in the end I had to cry because of all those beautiful souls in there. I cannot thank them enough for all the work they put in there.
