l Ieft them with a bag of beans and told them that this was their chance to change everything.
I was not sure how Lourdes would cope – it being the second time ever venturing into a major city, on her own. Would she remember where to go, would she remember how to get back home? Would she remember to look left and right before crossing a road? Would she have saved up enough money to buy another bag of beans? Would she get this business going?
I went away for 2 weeks and hoped they would manage to kick start this small business without depending on me to make it work. I hoped they would take this opportunity to uplift their family, to escape their tragic circumstances and importantly to restore their dignity.
I visited them today. And I don’t know who was more happy – them or me!
