Travel with A2S
If I had to pick one word to describe my experience in Nigeria this week, I suspect my selection might surprise you. Over the last six days, we’ve precariously navigated dirt roads covered with holes and often passable by one vehicle at a time. We visited schools of children with tattered uniforms, many running around barefoot on the muddy, soiled landscape. We were welcomed into dark “homes,” one-room spaces serving as all things to families of five. We observed sleepy, subdued children awaiting their first (and likely only) meal of the day at 4 o’clock in the afternoon. We talked to kids about their daily chores of fetching water, water we couldn’t even drink for risk of disease. We saw and smelled the impact of littered trash and inadequate restroom facilities. We were pulled by children just begging to be touched, to be hugged.
