Review for Make A Difference Now, Boise, ID, USA
Thank you, Make a Difference! Although our son procured donations of funds and supplies for Make A Difference orphanage (MAD), we were the true beneficiaries of our involvement with MAD. From start to finish, MAD assisted and communicated in professional and personal ways. While visiting, MAD gave us experiences to last a lifetime. MAD's work does not take away from a country's culture, nor does it impose a new belief system. Instead, MAD builds a country from within, one orphaned citizen at a time, by offereing a comfortable home, the best available education, healthcare, tutoring, and exposure to people and resources. The children in MAD's care have survived unbelievable pasts to become smiling, articulate friends to visitors like us. We played soccer at their school; we helped with letter writing; we accompanied children on trips to the market and to a remote village. All the while, MAD children exuded curiosity, warmth, and genuine appreciation and engagement. Given the opportunity, we would return, donate, and advise orphanages to replicate MAD's model. Make a Difference, thank you for the experience of a lifetime and for your truly amazing daily work!
