I am not sure what I had in my mind when we visited the East African Mission (EAMO). I guess in my mind I kept thinking of the reports on TV of orphanages around the world and the bad condition of the care. I was so nervous to come to EAMO but eager to see children and help as much a I could. I kept telling Beau jokingly (but not really joking) that we might have to take home a kid if it was really bad. Then we arrived and we met Ralph and May, also known as Mum and Dad. They were very modest and reserved but you could immediately feel the warmth of their kindness. They took the time to give us a tour of the property, tell us about the program and list the basics on how everything runs. Then we met the kids. Wow! The kids were all smiles and the sweetest things on earth. After hearing many of their stories, it is amazing and so touching to see how happy the children are now. Ralph and May have done an amazing job creating a home for 150 kids. It is overwhelming to see how much good they have done for these kids.
- In 2008 we (Meggan and Beau) set out to see the world and start a business. Since then we have visited 48 countries and we’re just getting started. Travel and design go hand in hand. Whether we’re on the other side of the planet, or down the street we always find things to inspire us.
