Our own Casey Mancuso took another trip to India. If you haven’t read about her last trip take a look here!
Another trip to India has come and gone. This trip was very different from my last. It was kind of like watching a movie for the second time, noticing things you didn’t notice the first time you watched it. This trip was exhausting and trying to say the least. There was a lot of traveling and needless to say, it was HOT! However, even though the relentless sweat and loads of mosquitoes, we were able to meet the needs of hundreds of kids by providing blankets, clothes, food, clean water and even some fun stuff like beads and nail polish for the girls, and candy and toys for the boys. These people have nothing and I mean nothing in the very literal sense of the word and even the smallest act of kindness and compassion can change their lives forever.
The best part of my journey was being able to see the beds that Netria purchased for a boys home last year. The smiles and gratefulness painted across their faces is unforgettable and makes the small sacrifices totally worth it. I’m extremely grateful to work for a company that will let me take off for a few weeks to pursue my passion over in India and even jump in to help where there is a need. Although India holds a special place in my heart and I already miss my family over there, I’m happy to be home, back to work and planning my next adventure across the globe.
