“I spent a month volunteering at Makimei Children’s Home in Kenya, an orphanage where 68 babies live. I am very grateful to have come to this place, I’ll take the best memories of the children and their smiling faces. I got a lot of appreciation from the women who run the orphanage and that’s priceless. No doubt a part of me will stay back in this place. What an unforgettable experience!” Coti Visintini (Argentina) Orphanage Program Kenya
