Find­ing a way to help

Friday - - Friday Inbox -

I am al­ways amazed by the pas­sion and com­mit­ment that ‘or­di­nary’ peo­ple cov­ered in the ‘Mak­ing a Dif­fer­ence’ sto­ries have to­wards a cause and how this re­sults in them lead­ing ex­tra­or­di­nary lives.

For ex­am­ple, in this week’s fea­ture (‘A life­line for Zam­bia’, July 19), you pro­file Helen Allen – a Bri­tish woman who leaves the com­fort of her home to work in HIV/Aids-rav­aged Zam­bia.

What im­pressed me the most about her was that, in spite the fact that she is a mother of two small kids, she has not let her fam­ily re­spon­si­bil­i­ties get in the way of help­ing peo­ple.
