Sittning at the airport and are on my way back home to my family. It is going to be so nice to hug my kids and family again even though I had the most beautiful and emotional week in a long time.
We went back to the school outside Veron.
There are so many smiling faces but also a few with deep thoughts. It is extremely nice to see the kids are allowed to be kids and surrounded by friends whom they can play with during the breaks. There life around the school looks differently.
The youngste of the orphan children, Jose Carlos, was in school. He looked tired.
But still he is in Clauss. During the break Ebba sat down with h for a while.
She asked how he was doing and if he had breakfast. The money we received for breakfast for the kids needs go go through the bank so everything Is registered and they have not been able to organize with the ”supermarket” across the street yet, but will in a couple of days.
His answer was ”No”. Ebba took his hand and walked straight to the office were the coconut was.
Jose Carlos siblings has not been able to go to school but since Ebba received donations from friends while we been here even the other to will have the chance to go to school. And his brother came today. So the help from donations gets straight to where it is most needed.
When we left school we went to the home of an 8-year old girl who’s parents are out of work, with some clothes and towels.
They started to play and fix with the bikes at once.
We asked grandmother what was wrong. And she was so worried
Two days ago he was smiling and I gave him my flip flop and he was so thankful
I was thankful for being there at that time to actually be able to help and once. But god it hurts to know so many people can’t get help when they need to.
When we walked back to our car Ebba said ” you know, this is how it is. Even if we done a lot this week there is always something new coming up.” And that really make me understand why the donations needs to come in fluently.
But for sure know that the work ”Together for better ” really makes a difference. And it’s been doing with so much love
But first we handed out the rest of the sports equipment Henrik Lundqvist foundation donated. The kids went crazy happy and it was so nice leaving them and see them laughing. Now I really hope that the hurricane that is expected on Wednesday will be not to bad. This is not what this beautiful kids need.
Thank you Ebba from the bottom of my heart for bringing me. I’m extremely thankful and so impressed by you. And even more happy for you becoming such a beautiful friend. I appreciate you so much!
Thanks to wonderful Ashley and Helena that helped us cover those days with film and pictures. You’re amazing women!
See you soon! Love you!
