City of Contrasts

70/100 complete

Damage

Down the road there are houses that will never be lived in again.

Still Brothers Together

Our house is perfect.

My Lovelies

There are parks that look like they have been ripped like old cloth.

Little Boy Playing

QE2 cricket pitch was pristine.

Getting On

This is the weird part. Some of us almost unaffected – some lives totally upside down.

We're Having Fun

So we pray and think of ways to support and love those who need it.

My Reason for Smiling

And we celebrate moments of enjoying life together because at the end of the day this is what gives us meaning and identity.

At the Top

Today we gave home baking, a new book, board game and homemade toy to a family who is currently without a home.

Sunshine, Grass, Family

Because feeling cared for is very important when your world is tough.
