“David Lozada, Rappler
A lot of people have stigmas against kids with special needs, but my experience with the kids taught me differently...
Despite the difficulties our group endured for the first day, there was a feeling of joy and fulfillment to be with the kids. I guess we saw in them hope and happiness for the simplest things that they have. I realized after the first day that the kids would help me more than I could help them. I knew that their effect on my life would be greater than my three days assistance to them.
More than the bonding and the memories, I realized that I would learn valuable lessons from my experience with them.
