I recently became involved with Corazon De Vida and can say that I am so happy I came across this organization. Driving to our "meeting location" that morning, I remember my stomach being in knots because I did not know what to expect, however, I calmed down the minute I got out of my car and was welcomed by such friendly faces. As the group waited for the bus and others to arrive, they shared their experiences with me and through their stories I could see how passionate they were. When we got to the orphanage, we literally spent the day with the kids. Getting to know them, playing games, coloring, painting, etc. It was pretty amazing to see how at the end of the four hours the kids were already asking when we would be back! That alone made it worth the trip. On the way back, I could not help but thank my lucky stars for the people I have in my life. If you are thinking of joining a group on one of the Corazon De Vida trips...stop thinking about it and just do it! You'd be surprised how much you get out of the experience and how much you learn from these kids!
Would you volunteer for this group again?
