    What a great opportunity and experience you had and hopefully from your words you can encourage others to do what you did by helping others… even if they cannot leave their country.

    I think sponsoring a child is a great idea. $39 is not a lot for something that will make such a big difference in someone’s life.

    This post is both very sad and very inspiring. As a mother, my heart breaks to hear about how children from countries like this grow up in such poverty and how much help they need just to get by. Your trip and words both inspire me to do more.

    Thank you for sharing about your work with World Vision Canada. I think it is such a great thing to be able to help others like that.

    Thank you so much for sharing your eye-opening experiences with us, and I agree $39 is not much at all to help change someone’s life.

    I have always taught my kids to be grateful that we live in a country like Canada. I have a child i have supported for years threw this program.

    I think you going there to help is wonderful. Giving back is a thing I’m trying this year. I’m working hard to give back in a new way each month. This is a perfect example of a great program to take advantage of.

    I really have no words right now other than than you. Paula thank you for sharing this powerful story and reminding us that we have enough. I think the gift cataloge is a wonderful idea! What better way to celebrate the birth of Christ then to give to those in need. <3

    We are so blessed to live in Canada that we often take it for granted. Sounds like your trip was a real eye opener. I think the gift catalogue is a great idea and the perfect gift to “give” someone on your list who is hard to buy for.

    Thank you so much for sharing. And I love this quote you posted “There’s a reason you have two hands.
    One is for you and the other is for helping.”

    We should all remember this – thanks for the reminder!

    Thank you so much for sharing your journey and opening eyes to the poverty and need to help others. I will purchase for gifts from the World Vision Catalogue, I have in the past purchased goats, hens and such for women in Sudan.
