When Ry and I returned to the States, we started fundraising for the orphanage and recruiting volunteers, and I now oversee a volunteer program that sends two college-aged volunteers to live and serve at the Hogar for three-month shifts. We are always looking for qualified, passionate volunteers, so if you know anyone who might be interested, please send them my way!
