The Witness program is something wonderful . I went to Bangladesh in 2014. Before going I took contact with a refugie from Bangladesh living in France. I met his wife and his newborn( that he never met) while I was in Dhaka. Now the family is reunited in Toulouse and we became close friends their family is growing and I help out with transports and hospital visits and some paperwork. And they give me so much in return with their gentelness. I hope this inspires someone else. I didn t want my Iwitness trip to end the day I came back.This is how I make it last.

Wow super

I am one of them ...proud of it 😊 it has been a great experience..thanks
