Werner: Perhaps in part it was my own rather rough childhood experiences which fuelled my idealistic desire and set me off on a search for a meaningful life, one beyond purelymaterialistic goals. As an agnostic it came as a surprise that in the end it was a sample of Christ’s philosophy in action which touched my heart deeply and made me determined to find ways to put care sensibly into meaningful action. The love and the care that we share can change lives, it enhances humanity, it lifts and empowers, can even make our own life more rich and beautiful.

Janice:“Everyone has a talent, a gift, something they can share that enriches the lives of others. It is my passion to encourage people to share their time and talents especially for the benefit of the socially disadvantaged”
