Creating a caring association is exciting!
Absorbing and varied, it helps innocent victims to restore a face, the use of a hand or a foot, to find physical independence and thus the joy of living once more. When a child, an adolescent or an adult joins us, with an accompying parent for the younger ones, he or she brings with himself the shame felt from the looks of others, the anguish of an unhappy life, the fear of a future without joy : how much sorrow is in a look! He /she must be taught to smile again, to hope : but what a victory when after a few days in France, these persons find again, thaks to the devotion of their carers, a love of life : they learn to lough again. It doesn't take a lot to help them.
