It’s easier together
I still remember when Barbara told me that she was going to Tanzania to volunteer at the NGO Africa Directo. It was a summer day, sunny and intensely hot, that’s what the south has!
We were introduced by a friend we have in common. I confess that something caught my attention from the first moment I saw her. With the passing of the days, until the moment of farewell arrived, I met a woman with a humility that crossed borders, always aware of the people around her. A strong woman with a very definite idea, in which I believed and will always believe.
After a few months in the African country, we maintained a fluid and constant contact through the phone. She told me about her day to day, delving into each of the projects in which she was involved, and the full satisfaction that the smiles she received from those boys and girls, sometimes not so little, gave her.
His eagerness to want to be useful and to be able to help, prompted him to create the photographic exhibition that we can currently enjoy in the Community of Madrid.
The smiles captivated him, but almost at the same time he was also aware of those looks of uncertainty and sadness, which did nothing but make him reflect in order to transform the negative into a positive. I know you’ve been thinking about it a lot. Until one day, after many calls to public agencies, the time or the opportunity came to publicize his experience.
