I couldn’t believe it when the email at work came out looking for volunteers for the Habitat for Humanity team being sent out to Ethiopia in 2015. Ethiopia. Wow! The very place that Bob Geldof was telling us to send out money to all those years ago. I didn’t reply straight away though as I wanted to check things over with Linda but she was more than happy to support me.
I fired the email off to say I was interested and then in due course the reply came to check that I was still interested… I was… and before I knew it I was selected…. Was that it? No presentation to show us what we were expected to do? No information about where in Ethiopia we were going or where we would be staying? Ach! That’s fine…. I’ll just throw caution to the wind and cough up the signing on fee. What’s the worst that can happen?
