More Stories of Hope

“Every kindness that I have experienced here helps me to hope for a new life and a new start for my daughter and I…
When you are in a situation like this it is the practical day to day things that become so important. You don’t realize or appreciate simple-seeming things like a laundry basket until you don’t have one, or more importantly the means by which to get one for yourself…The definition of what a luxury is really changes by being in this situation, mostly they are things that normally we don’t give a second thought to.”
