Dr. Hoefflin with some happy children in the community
Pamela and I are rewarded each day with a happy heart and warm soul by helping these little innocent children. It is extremely rare for a middle or upper class individual to personally visit such a shanty town slum and see the unbelievable poverty and suffering of other human beings. I've been involved with poor and disabled children in my work in 82 countries over the last 30 years. After seeing thousands upon thousands of these poor children, I continue to be amazed by their sweet smiling faces when someone puts a hand out to help them despite living in the most horrible of conditions. It is this spirit that pushes one on, despite the challenges, to help more than help itself.
