Today we had visitors from the Philippines. Robert told us about how he lived on the streets. When he was sick someone took him to the hospital. He recovered luckily and went on to become stronger and fitter. His story made me feel sad but now he is following his dreams to become a Chef. I am very happy for him.
At Bahay Tuluyan they have a drop in centre for homeless children. They teach the children about their rights and help to educate them.
I discovered how many people in the Philippines walk past the homeless and pay no attention to them. It made me feel pretty sad. When I see homeless people in the city I will be more thoughtful from now on.
I am so proud of what Robert and Donna have achieved since growing up on the streets. How they lived is incredible and now they have changed their lives.
