A team from the UK are heading off to Manila at the end of January and we are excited to share our journey with fellow streetlight supporters. While we are away we will leave updates as often as possible and it is a real encouragement to the team if you are able to leave messages from home as well.
This week we’ll introduce some of the team members so I’ll start.
I’m Helen, I first visited Kanlungan in 2010 and I became a Streetlight Trustee in 2012 and this is my 5th trip. Over the last 10 years I have witnessed many changes in the projects, children I met on my first trip have now grown but the commitment of staff and transformation in children’s lives stay the same. Each trip is different and I can’t wait to see what this team bring to our 2 weeks in Manila.
Hi, my name is Lou I’m married to Gareth and have two teenage children, Matthew and Charlotte.
I love walking and will soon be training to become a yoga teacher.
I’ve been a nurse for over 20 years caring for patients in many different situations, I’m so lucky to have a job that I love, caring for others is incredibly rewarding so I fully understand why the staff at Kanlungan do what they do!
The opportunity to visit Kanlungan is something I feel very fortunate to have and I can’t wait to meet everyone!!
