This past summer, I have experienced something life changing, it was something I have always wanted to expose myself to so I can understand this world better. My time with HFC gave me the opportunity to follow a dream. In Rwanda and Tanzania, I was able to see what life was like in a third world country with all the struggles that we don’t have here in America. With these struggles there was still happiness in their lives which was hard for me to believe at first. While volunteering at C.H.U.K. in Kigali, I was touched by many children in pediatrics. In Rwanda, they do not have any doctors that perform heart surgery and many of the kids I grew close to had heart problems and were eventually going to die. But everyday, I would walk in and there they were… all with the biggest grins on their faces like nothing was wrong and their lives were great even through all their struggles. They made me laugh till I was crying. The most significant thing I brought back to America was a bracelet made by one of them that I wear everyday because of the relationship I had with her. Relationships are key to finding the importance of my life and what it means to me. Humanity for Children gave me the opportunity to build those relationships.
