Day 7

Another interesting but thought provoking day. We spent the morning in our projects, Destiny were still recovering from all the donations they had been given.

After lunch Fred arrived to pick us up and take us to The Walk which was the first project that had been set up by Alex. Although the area seemed larger than both our projects they feed 400 children for lunch everyday, most of whom live on the 'Hilton'.

Following on from The Walk we visited the Hilton. The Hilton is the name of the dump where many families and their children live, and make up most of the children that attend The Walk for school and those who visit for lunch. The dump was quite shocking to see how people lived but was good to see how resourceful they were recycling and living off of waste from the local area. At the dump we were all able to buy gifts to bring home, which were amazing.
