Meet my sister

Some of you may have wondered why I'm doing this Congo event at all, why I care about it all so much.

She, and thousands like her, are the reason why.

She's only 18. And yet she's seen more in her very short life than most of us will see if we lived a hundred lifetimes.  And she's very much a real, breathing, feeling person.
“Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.
