Stopping to invest in someone's life could be one of the most magnificent things you could ever do. They could be a stranger on the street, someone you've worked with, or someone you've decided to support on your volunteering journey; But... they could and should also be the people closest to your home.
Our guest today, Simon, we will be continuing our chat in this episode about his journeys to varying parts of our world. We reflect some more about the intricacies of his travels in regards to being street smart, and gaining an appreciation of the world around us.
He's also someone who has taken risks in the sense of jumping into volunteer and humanitarian work across multiple continents... from the Dominican Republic in Central America, to Zimbabwe in Africa, to Lebanon and Iraq in the Middle East.
Simon tells us tales from over the years giving his time for these worthwhile organisations, where he had his eyes opened unto things that most of us would never want to see in our lifetime.
It's an informative chat, and one that will hopefully make you want to get involved in some way, even if it's just on your doorstep.
