Category: Travel & Help

When travelling you occasionally meet people who are vulnerable, who live in difficult conditions, supported by organisations that work away in the shadows: schools, orphanages, hospitals that fight hunger, disease and war, day in, day out.

This has happened to us often, and we’ve given a helping hand by organising collections before our departure: an experience that has coloured our travels with humanity.

These are the situations we’ve encountered and the associations we’ve helped: making them known is our way of giving a small – yet we hope important – contribution.
