Many people asked us why are we doing this? My answer would always be, because I can do it and I have extra and I am happy doing it. Some people will justify by saying that we are encouraging lazy people or drug
addicts. These are the people who are not only living life thinking they are better than others, but also too busy looking at other people but themselves.
I do not care what people think! To us who are Reach Out Volunteers, we are doing this for various reasons, we want to help, for some, to heal their souls, or just happy doing it. Whatever the reasons are, it is not for other people to justify.
Some people asked if they are dangerous? hmm never thought it like that ...they are human like us too but they were born on the other side of the coin, when I gave them food, I can see that they searched my face if I would treat them differently but I smiled at them instead. And they smiled back ... I have always been treated by them like a lady or a sister. Respect is not given, it is earned.
I am not better because I am the one who is giving but instead I feel grateful for the opportunity to share...
