I had the privilege of serving with HOPE Worldwide as a volunteer in and around Johannesburg, South Africa. The images below detail the moments that made this trip meaningful and memorable.
In the mornings we would serve in the local créches (day cares) and teach the kids about numbers, colors, etc. Through spending time with these kids, we learned how valuable having fun is even when your surroundings are rough.
Possibly the toughest part of the trip was visiting the mothers and their children in their homes. Informal settlements like these are home to many throughout South Africa.
