Just got back from the first 2.5 days of the PCT Camp for the children (which gives them an opportunity to be kids, eat well, sleep in a bed and get some spiritual input). It was exhausting, but good.

I got the opportunity to lead some participative workshops with the children on two evenings, using a range of activities to “listen” to their problems – there are lots, the most significant of which are financial problems, difficulties with school work, poor quality housing and health concerns. I have to say that I was moved to tears reading all their comments about the physical abuse they suffer and particularly the comment (which one has to remember was coming from a child below the age of 12) that read “I feel that I am not for this world”.
