Story  -  a true story, told by John Kenward  (approx 7 mins.)

Against all the odds, Jacqueline survived. Just a few months after the fire, in the spring of the year 2000, she found herself sitting on the ground, gazing at a large white man. This man was Geoff Booker. He and his wife Geraldine were visiting a nearby city, and some friends there had told them about Kabbubu’s orphans. Geoff and Geraldine had gone to the village to see what they could do to help. When they arrived in Kabbubu, one of the village elders said: ‘Come with me.  The orphans are waiting for you.’ 

Geoff and Geraldine were shocked at what they found. They’d gone to Kabbubu expecting to find a dozen or so orphans, but on the ground in front of them were around four hundred children, and all of them were staring expectantly in their direction. They were thin, malnourished and barefooted. At Geoff’s feet was Jacqueline, with sad eyes peering up at him from her scarred face.

Geoff turned to a village elder who was standing close by. 
‘Are all these children orphans?’  he asked.
‘Yes,’ was the simple reply. ‘Can you help?'  ...

On our own there is little we can do to make a difference.  When we team up and work together we can build a better world!  (Sample on the audio player above.)


Reflection Points  -  samples 

1.  Why do you think the people in Kabbubu couldn’t help themselves?

2.  What does it mean to help someone to help themselves?

3.  We know that things are better when people work together to solve problems. Why do you think that is?
