My husband, Terry, and I as older volunteers felt the trip and introduction to Raphael to be a challenge. In some ways it was, but, from our very first day settling into the Mess and enjoying Hari’s cooking we felt safe and looked after. This support and interest for our comfort and wellbeing continued with kind staff and our fellow volunteer Bob and Mrs Shalini Kapil, (in charge of the volunteers quarters in Raphael).
Our time with the children in the school and elsewhere at Raphael was so special – especially seeing them all happy and well cared for. We very much admired the dedication of all the teachers & teachers’ assistants.
We enjoyed the laughter in the workshop & admired all that was done there.
The grounds at Raphael were so green and well-kept and very restful to us both.
The faces of the children of Raphael will always be clear and warm in our hearts.
Thank you again Susie for your help and support.
