No, we are not referring to your beloved NGO above. We are talking about trying to continue what we do, even in these uncertain times – to touch lives.
At the time of writing this, it has been 64 days to the lockdown. That is, over two months without meeting our children, with a warm handshake or a hug full of love. Or an energetic high-five or fist-bump, that is sure to make your hand go red! We miss our daily meditations that brought us all together, evaporating all our worry; the games that made us feel alive; the carefree laughter and sharing of stories – both, healing and heartbreaking; ultimately, the learning centre and communities that felt like home, and sometimes a little more than home. While we can’t wait to experience this, all over again, we respect the time we are in.
Although we are currently separated in time and space, it has only made us realise why we do what we do. As it is said, distance makes the heart grow fonder. We are motivated to start again, with renewed energy. To connect a little better, to touch just one more life.
