I’ve always thought that the home was special. It is a sacred place. This is the same in many cultures across the globe. In the home, you are at your best, yet the most fragile. When I got the news that I will be staying with a host family in Ukraine, I must admit, I was a bit scared. Travelling to a strange land was one thing, but to also stay with strangers, was a whole other thing.
In under a week, I’ll be flying out to Ukraine to undertake some volunteering for two weeks somewhere. I know, it’s not first place that would come to mind when you think about places that needs volunteers. But, I’ll explain why I chose it.
