My Reflections From the Field

I’ve just arrived home after travelling to India and Nepal with my daughter to visit some of Asian Aid’s Children’s Homes. We had an incredible time and I want to share with you some of the highlights.

The first thing you notice stepping off the plane in both countries is the chaotic traffic. It is indescribable how all these different vehicles, animals and pedestrians all share the same road with minimal observance of road rules.

Helen’s Heart for Humanity

“MUMMY, MUMMY, MUMMY EAGER IS HERE!”

For over thirty years, thousands of children in the Asian Aid sponsorship program have repeated this phrase over and over again. This scene is typical of Helen arriving at an Asian Aid school. Simply dressed in graceful Indian or Nepali traditional attire, Helen bends to greet each smiling child. She carefully remembers their names and their stories – so many names and stories. And like seeing their favourite aunty, the children love spending time with Mummy Eager and look forward to her visits even now.
