CARE FOR LIFE INC
June 27, 2012

I worked with Care For Life in Mozambique during May-June 2012. I was so impressed not only with the approach that Care For Life takes in helping villages in Africa, but more importantly their results. So many health and family issues, based on the statistics, are wildly improved for the villagers. I walked among the residents of several villages near Beira, Mozambique and talked with many adults and children. Every person explained that their lives were better after Care For Life began working with them. I personally observed the Care For Life personnel in action. I think they do a marvelous job and yet their resources are, apparently, quite limited. I was honored to have been of some little help.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

By personally watching the villagers and talking with them I am satisfied that great improvements are being made. Also, Care For Life extensively documents progress toward family and community goals.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I can't express strongly enough how much I enjoyed meeting new people and being able to talk, communicate with the villagers. I continue to desire to help where I can.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

People want to improve themselves and their families, event though they have so little. I was impressed that with the right kind of help (education) many lives can be improved in multiple ways.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I observed and interviewed villagers, took photos and talked with local experts regarding construction of houses, water wells and latrines. I will produce a how-to pamphlet for use by villagers to improve their living conditions.
