Rewarding stories about Gif?
At the refugee centre, volunteers spend time with women struggling with accommodation and work. Before beginning our work here I questioned God with what my purpose would be there. what could I give to these women,? Although I had areas that could have stopped me from connecting with the women, I had other things like my amazingness at playing games.The next week one of the women remembered me and asked for me. Which was extremely rewarding because she must have felt some sort of connection to have remembered my name. -Taff
What’s your favourite pastime so far in Nice?
