Do you ever get that fire in your belly that you want to do more than what you are doing – to truly make a difference? I know it well, and for years I pushed it down as I became too busy to do anything about it.
While I always made it my mission to add value to the lives of others, I knew there was a greater purpose. The fire to contribute was burning stronger.
What I didn’t expect, was to find my purpose in the middle of the Thailand jungle, in the shape of a boy named Q. Q’s mother had died from AIDS related causes, and his father died from similar complications, leaving Q on his own to survive. My heart ached for him and we instantly bonded.
Having a quick walk around the village in Kaper it was easy to see that sadly Q’s story is not unique; there were many more children faced with extreme poverty and the burden of surviving on their own.
