Hearing from the Margins

Posted on Posted in communication, community development

I am hosting an incredible tour for CAUSE Canada right now. We just had our first event, one of our guests, Jepamani from Sri Lanka shared her story of what it was like to be present when the Tsunami hit her village. She talked about what she heard, saw and smelled over those early days, and she continued to share how they still live in tents today … Five and a half months after the wave.

All too often we hear from media, or from visiting Aid workers. This tour is helping share the stories of the actual members of the margins. Those heros who live there today and will continue to live there into the future, supporting and helping those around them

It was a powerful night. I only wish that everyone could hear from our guests firsthand.
