At risk of sounding stereotypical I must say it has been pretty amazing to be doing this work. I have realised there are still people who give their time to try and pursue goals of peace, justice and development – be it personal or societal. I have been witness to many a miracle of interaction between people with fewer resources and in more vulnerable situations than anyone can imagine. But even throughout the hardship of doing what’s needed with lack of means and tools, they give with energy and a smile and expect nothing in return. Simply trying to make life better for some. It has been a lesson and a pleasure to be able to watch and observe, from a close distance, the work of Dr. Ivan Mañero and his team, relentlessly and without defeat.
Thank you, Doctor.
