"Even in today´s busy and often selfish times, it is possible to create something unique, beneficial, even miraculous in an almost opposite part of the world," says Bára Munzarová – an actress and adoptive mother of a boy in Kenya.
I don´t believe in coincidences. I believe, that things and events in our lives happen exactly how they are supposed to. We ourselves are in charge of our own lives through accepting responsibility for our actions. We create our own future through the decisions that we make, through the paths that we choose.
That´s why I know that it wasn´t a coincidence that I came across the idea of long-distance adoption in February this year. At that time I felt a desperate need to resist the continuous populist-political campaign which was spreading the fear of refugees and of everything strange and unknown through all media; I felt a great need to get involved in helping the needy.
The project of Center Narovinu, including the project ISLAND OF HOPE, immediately caught my attention when first searching the internet.
People, who are a part of the project, who shape and conduct it, deserve our support and admiration. These people are the angels of our busy lives who prove with their actions, not just with empty words, that it is possible, even in today´s busy and often selfish times, to create something unique, beneficial, even miraculous in an almost opposite part of the world.
Let´s create our own islands of hope in each one of us, if only by not allowing ourselves to get scared by loud-mouthed people full of hate. To start with, let´s stop for a moment and for example read about the activities of Center Narovinu. Then nothing will stand in the way of making ourselves feel better through helping others. As it is really beautiful, to feel the joy of belonging together with all the people on the planet, through offering even little help that one is able to offer. Even spreading information about this incredibly unique project can help.
I wish you nothing but pleasant feelings from helping others.
