Photo Memory from Daisy

Programme Completed: New - The PWA Daycare & Nursery Centre

Date Posted: 10/05/2017

See what memory Daisy has chosen to go with her photo...

We asked past volunteers to choose 1 or more photos from their time with us and tell us why that photo was significant to them, here's a 'photo memory' from Daisy who volunteered with us as part of a school cultural exchange trip:

"We went to see a lovely lady called Amina who looks after children for mothers who would otherwise be unable to work due to having young children. Amina moved from the North of Ghana down to the South in order that she could get a job and earn money to pay for her brother’s tuition fees. These are two of the children who the lady looked after.

I have never been in a space that was so small and so hot [compared to Amina’s home], it was like a glass factory, the children were empty with no life, but this lady was doing everything she could to help them and their families. This helped me to realise true acts of kindness and the true meaning of wanting to help somebody. I left this place in tears, struggling to understand how children can be so empty, yet there was nothing I could do. So, in our short time there, we blew bubbles, we danced, we cuddled and tried everything we could to make a small difference to these young lives -this will stick with me forever- this makes me want to make a difference to this world."
