I know a few of you have been curious about what I do in Sierra Leone, Africa. I've shared a small bit, but I didn't want to be annoying...ESPECIALLY since this IS a movie blog! Haha!
But, if you are curious, you can check out this video I made yesterday! It's comprised of clips showing the joyful part of their EXTREMELY vibrant personalities.
Sierra Leone is the least livable country in the world (UN statistics). It should be full of depressed people. It's not. It's full of starving, sick people who still manage to smile and dance and sing.
That's the craziest part about going there! Seeing desperate people still trying to hold on and hope.
If I went through even a 1/10th of what these children go through every day-- I would simply want to curl up in the corner and be done with life.
But, these children are fighting to survive.
If you want to learn more:
The Bridge of Hope/Makambo Village (the organization we do schools and feeding programs through).
Living Water International (the organization we do wells through).
