Hey, friends! I am Gina and I live in Cluj, Romania and I work as a fundraiser in a foundation that is working with orphan kids (Impact Romania). I love my job and I started it by volunteering because I just love working with kids and because God equipped me to do His work here and wherever He may take me to. Last year was my first year when I went to Africa (Namibia to be exact) to volunteer in helping with the kids there and also building some houses for the people that are still living in simple huts. When I considered going there it felt like a far-away dream but my friends made it possible (yeah, I have great friends!!) This experience grew my faith in my Father that is why..
This year, with full trust in Him and in His children - you, I decided to go again - I don't have the money for it (only 50 Euros to risk reserving the plane ticket), I just have the heart and the courage because I will go only if He takes me. I will be joining a bigger group going to Uganda (helping a foundation called Together For Africa - see the link here) that has as objectives building a school and clinic (those are their urgent needs) and also doing activities with the kids. I will be staying for a month and I will help wherever is necessary but my heart is for the kids! <3
For every 10 Euros that are donated for me going there I will provide one pair of shoes for children. They are barefoot and their soles are so dried and because of that their skin breaks causing a lot of pain especially when walking barefoot. That is why I chose to help them in this way... I don't have 950 euros to go there but I can provide shoes for them either from my family or from my friends that have kids.
Those 950 Euros are money for the plane ticket and accommodation. Thank you even for reading this...and if you don't have the time or the opportunity to go there yourself you can support them by putting shoes on their feet through me!
