Help for families affected by the fire

This morning, we went to deliver the gift (Rp. 1.489.000) made by a friend of mine (pasta, rice, sugar, oil, fish, flour) to the two families who lost everything in the fire.

The family of Welly Mamentu
It crashed my heart, see guests of another poor family and hear them told what had happened, kept opening in me the open wound on that sad evening.

It could have the same thing to me, I have been spared, but if I was in their conditions?

Poor families!!!

Yet they do not lose hope, the smile and the will to fight.

I am here and I will be close and I hope soon to be able to help more.

The power of sharing and smiles

The beauty of living and being with Indonesian people, is sharing, the smile which never lacking and that contagious you.

Share lunch with people
Whenever you're in some village, the coming to the table and invite all to eat together becomes a time of celebration (usually leave their guests eat and then if there's anything left divide it between them).

Anyway in any house you enter, you have to willingly accept what you offer is their way to welcome you and take you respect.

And if you're lucky enough to hand them something, it becomes a magical moment and then rush to the village a lot of children that you are reaching out and smile at you.

Too bad sometimes not all have to, but they're happy anyway and share that gift with others.
