The road to home visits.
When he saw us arriving for the home visit, the grandfather went into the house to lug chairs for us.
Without making home visits, we would not have imagined how difficult it was for the children to grow up, nor would we understand
the psychological problems these children have.
The teacher interpreted for us the family situation as told by the grandfather as the volunteer took down notes.

unfortunate life experience.
These three students waited until all the other students had gone to say goodbye to us again; our sincere wishes that they would be
admitted to the key senior high school of their choice.
These three especially outstanding students came from three particularly difficult families; one was an abandoned baby, the other one’s home was particularly poor, the third one was just like an orphan.
This boy’s mother died young, his home was a mud house, often beaten by his drunk father; he waited till the
very last after the symposium ended only to give me a hug to bid farewell.
