David Cross, ZOE Australia’s Director, shares his reflections on his recent trip to ZOE Thailand.
“I recently returned from ZOE Thailand, where I was able to spend some time with our team and I was, once again, blown away by the life-changing work that we are all a part of.
These children have faced unimaginable hardships and when they first arrive, the hurt and trauma of their pasts are evident in their interactions with everyone around them. Some of them respond with anger and hatred using words that reveal their pain, while others are scared and withdrawn.
However, what is truly remarkable is the healing and transformation that takes place over time. It’s almost unbelievable to see how these children change and grow. Some of them are studying or completing internships, while others have grown into adulthood and joined the workforce, and some have started families and gone on to support and help others in need.”
