|Schoolboy speaks out at the Equal Education Public Hearings, Cape Town|
There have been other challenges this year too, and it has been tough emotionally. A mother I know in Cape Town found out that her adopted daughter was deaf, and I tried to help her fundraise for a cochlear implant, to allow her little girl to hear. My charity, CHW, has also been trying to support eleven siblings who lost their father to cancer at the beginning of the year. I have known this family since 2010, through the Romanian charity, FAST, and this has been such a devastating time. Although the struggle to help children in need can get very tough, it is something we must not give up on!
I am looking forward to both taking the time to write my own posts, and to reading others' blogs this month. It will be good to learn from other people and see what things they are posting about during NaBloPoMo!
