Fall back of sociopolitical crisis

As a community volunteer working part time with an organization I come across lots of girls who are young mothers and most of them single.I come to realise how terrible the crisis has affected us .my heart bleeds seeing how they are helpless struggling with their babies.all I can give is encouragement and a little advice and linking a few to other services for assistance. I realised how uninformed they were about available services.This caused me to start a safe space for these girls where I can give psychosocial support and encouragement in my own little way.

Hi Carine,

Your small ways that you thought is not a small ways. When you give your heart to help that is the biggest thing you can do. Thank you for sharing. We need a person like you, and how you support and encourage makes a better place for these young mothers to be hopeful.

Chère Carine,
Le fait d'être auprès des personnes qui ont besoin d'aide ,est déjà un réconfort moral. Merci du travail que vous menez en leur faveur.

My dear Carine,
I appreciate your modesty, but know that the "little way," is a very big way for how many people in your community are doing or have done what you are doing?

The young women, probably adolescents, are very lucky to have you because in most cases, nobody says a kind word to them, and the psychosocial support and encouragement that you are providing to them is commendable because (a) it makes them feel valued as human beings, and (b) it empowers them to know there is tomorrow after unwanted or unintended pregnancies ( I am assuming this is the case).

I applaud you for what you are doing, may you continue to touch many more vulnerable women and to give them love and hope. More power to you.
