I found the trip immensely humbling. The people of Zimbabwe suffer terribly under extreme poverty and still manage to be cheerful, polite and kind. They do not complain and maintain a sense of pride, humour and hard work. It was a privilege to work with them and try and help in a small way. We can all learn a lot from their daily attitudes to a situation they have no control over. They blew me away and I was very lucky to be in a position to go to Zimbabwe and would love to go back. The organisation of Cosmos and how well cared for we were was fantastic and I would highly recommend anyone who is thinking of doing voluntary work to join the Cosmos team.
