After the usual morning meditation, the sister thanked the volunteers who are finishing their special needs program today (Sophie, Michelle, Fey and me) for our dedication, love given and time spent in volunteering.
On the Thursdays, the orphanage is closed for visitors and volunteers. I wanted to experience another program and joined the volunteers in a preschool.
Our supervisor, Rachelle, called sick this day. I asked to be assigned for the physiotherapy for three boys again. After the usual feeding of the students on the wheelchairs and the break, we needed to invent our own activities.
Today was a Cleaning day.
I was wondering which emotions are “available” for the students.
After the usual morning meditation, the sister asked me to join Sophie, a French woman who volunteers in the orphanage for the last 6 months.
The orphanage is closed on Thursdays, so I rejoined with the group of volunteers for one more day of orientation.
