There is no doubt that as a service trip, there will be plenty of giving at both the McKean Leprosy Rehabilitation Centre and the Agape AIDS Orphanage – physically, as we undertake important work to improve these places for their residents, and emotionally, as we build relationships and take time to offer friendship, understanding and support.
The world that has been revealed to us isn’t the minority in the world, it is the vast majority. We we’re expecting to help and change the orphanage. While we did make a difference the biggest change was within us. These experiences of unconditional love and selfless sacrifice changed all who went on this trip and shows how far human kindness can reach into the lives of others. I encourage all who are contemplating going on this trip to go and experience this eye opening adventure.” – Charlie Wyatt (TAS Student)
