While in Rwanda, we remained at the Agahozo Shalom Youth Town, a town worked by Ann Heyman as a reaction to Rwanda’s developing vagrant issue after the destruction. There, the youngsters are given a “mom” (no doubt a lady who lost her better half, as the kids likewise lost their folks), a home with new kin, and instruction. In the focal point of the town there is a mango tree, and at whatever point any of us got lost, we went to the mango tree to track down our direction.
There are not yet words created to depict how strong and recuperating it is for each and every individual who contacts foot in the town. The youngsters go from bashful and held to splendid understudies who flourish in expressions, photography, geology and innovation. While they are in the town they partake in “Tikkum Alev and Tikkum Alam” and that means to recuperate the world, you need to mend the heart; they go out each week in Rubona to fabricate block houses for families out of luck. A few children accompany every one of their possessions in an earthy colored paper sack however they take quite a lot more with them when they graduate. An even come to the states to seek after their college degrees!
At the point when Ann Heyman passed on a couple of years prior, the chief let us know that for two entire days, there was not so much as a subsequent where there wasn’t an understudy under the mango tree sobbing sharply at such extraordinary misfortune.

TT: Much thanks to you for sharing that strong experience. Could you at any point let us know what your movements have meant for you, by and by?
S: Last semester, I concentrated on abroad in Chile and was a worker at Teleton. Teleton is a free center that gives recovery and clinical benefits to youngsters in Chile for nothing. Teleton is in numerous South American nations and convey comparative ways of thinking and missions.
There, I profoundly experienced what quality consideration intended to wiped out kids. Frequently, I was essential for a gathering that played with the children and kept them engaged until their folks can fly back to Santiago (Chile’s capital city) to bring them back home. Different times, I helped transport patients to their particular consideration needs (recovery, psych care, or normal check-ups).
Medical care in the US is a cerebral pain on great days and a bad dream on terrible days. In any case, working in Santiago with Teleton assisted me with learning the unbelievable advantages and difficulties that go with an exclusive free consideration administration focus. ( Chileans observe “Day of Teleton” in December where all the subsidizing goes into running the focuses)
