In January, I'll be heading out to Durban in South Africa where I'll be spending six months volunteering at LIV Village where holistic residential care is provided for vulnerable children, giving them a family and a safe community in which they can flourish.
In LIV's words, "there are millions of orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa, mostly due to HIV/AIDS. LIV focuses on a solution to aid this crisis. We place these children into a family environment with a trained foster mother to love them, a school to educate them, and where all their needs are met. If these children are equipped with essential moral values and life skills, they will grow up to be a generation that will influence positive change within South Africa, Africa and the world."

It's an amazing organisation, with a passion to see lives turned around and a nation changed - and I am sooo excited to spend a few months of my placement year with these guys! I have been saving for this for a wee while now, but as I am paying LIV for the program itself, along with all the other costs organising and getting me there, I could do with trying to raise some funds to help and would be so grateful for your support!
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my page x
