Solidarity Volunteering: Strong Relationships, Mutual Development

Elaine and Phillip’s Letter from Swaziland

After about two months of heat and dust, with the plants and trees still bravely putting out their new leaves and blossom, it is finally raining steadily this evening, having thundered all afternoon.


Friendships grow between people of different backgrounds and cultures because they meet as persons, not because they share a common heritage.
Such friendships grow because we all belong to the largest group of all, the human race. - Jean Vanier
