The Accident and the Recovery - Central America vlog
Hi Guys, Just a little video about my accident and my recovery. We had some amazing support the hospital didn't charge us a penny on the day of the accident, and even dropped us back to our hostel. After that I washed my body twice a day in the showers in Tulum to find out that the water has so much bacteria in it that it got infected. I then had to wash with bottled water for two weeks, whilst not being able to walk. As well as paying hospital fees in Tulum for antibiotics, muscle relaxers and pain killers. Here's the journey and what I've achieved since, I may be scarred for ever, but I've made good memories.

Volunteering in Uganda, working against orphanage voluntourism
Are you being helpful or harmful? Have you done your research on what a place needs, and about the country, people and culture. All questions that need to be asked when considering volunteering. This is an introduction on my experience, sparking awareness about orphanage tourism, and about my time in beautiful Uganda to work with Child's i foundation in their aim to see every child in Uganda in a loving family. Re-imagining a Uganda with no orphanages, re-building communities to prevent children being placed in orphanages, and repurposing current orphanages into community hubs to support communities to access education, health, and work. I have learnt more in 3 months in Uganda than the last 5 years in London, and can't wait to have the opportunity to go back and work on another project with the team. Watch this space, for more videos on Uganda and its beauty and understanding volunteering vs voluntourism.
