Last night we said thank you and goodbye to our overseas volunteer partners at an end of distribution party that the SCAW team hosted. These volunteers worked so hard for months to prepare for these past two weeks and show so much heart and love for the children. The SCAW team has been so very privileged to work with such caring people.
Throughout this distribution, team member Helen has been training to take over as team leader in Tanzania. By the last distribution she had taken on most responsibilities including organization of team members and photography. Upon hearing that Helen would be returning as team leader next year, the overseas partner volunteers cheered and gave some very touching speeches, knowing that Helen is kind, capable and passionate and will do an amazing job when she returns next year.
This morning, we said goodbye to four of our team members as they left on safari and the rest of us will board our return flight to Canada later this evening. We have grown as individuals, as a team and have become like family during this experience. Murray Dryden would be overjoyed to know that 5000 more children are now sleeping peacefully. The SCAW donors have made this possible.
