It’s been a good 3 years now since my sponsorship of my darling Lazaro in Tanzania, Africa ended but I still think of him so regularly. He changed my life, and I’m so thankful to have had the opportunity to have met him.
Going to Tanzania to visit my sponsor child was my primary reason for going to East Africa. Who knew that I would be so mesmerised and completely changed after the visit. Nairobi and Northern Tanzania, Arusha, were like no-where I had ever been before. There is so much room for growth and development- but the people also seem happy and thankful for what they have.
I’ve since been back to Africa and fulfilled my second dream of climbing Mt Kilimanjaro for Alzheimer’s Australia NSW to honour my grandpa. I first saw the incredible mountain on this trip.
To have a mother look you in the eyes and, without words, say thank you, is something I truly can never forget.
My father went on to sponsor his little brother, pictured here, after being so moved by my visit to their village.
Thank you http://www.worldvision.com.au and The Tanzania office. An amazing experience!
