Its Holliday time here in Lebanon, and in the Muslim world in general. Eid al-Adha as it’s called, is in remembrance of the story of when Abraham was about to sacrifice his son but God spared “us” and provided a ram instead. In modern times, a ram is sacrificed and divided into thirds. One part for the poor, another for relatives, and the remaining part for the family.
Our time in Bangladesh has come to a close. Not because we want to move on but because our visa’s are maxed out, with one day to spare.
It was a little sad to leave all the people we’ve gotten to know and worked along side. New friends from France, Belgium, USA, and of course the many Bengali’s at the Hope Foundation. They’ll continue to do their best to help the almost one million Rohingya refugees.
Hello, Nathan Atteberry here. I hope all is well.
Suzanne and I are planning on volunteering for a couple of months in what we see as two of the most dire locations on earth. We were wondering if you wanted to help too?
This fact always blows my mind. 1 in 10 people in the world is a refugee.
Thanks for the warm welcome, Peru.
Thanks to all that helped us help others…from family and friends contributing funds and sharing this story with others, to the hardworking Peruvian guides and contacts that we’ve gotten to know. Thanks to our teammate Paula. Thanks for contributing to our cars very heavy load of preventive healthcare, and she’s now very thankful that all of that weight is gone and being used.
Hi Friends, Nathan Atteberry here, I hope all is well. Suzanne and I are doing well here in Ecuador. We’re making plans to volunteer to help our neighbors to the south in Peru. They’ve had a horrible month with massive amounts of rain and flooding caused by El Nino.
