As we made our way to our first day of service in Delft, I thought I was prepared for what awaited us on this beautiful day in South Africa. It amazes me how things can change so quickly in mere seconds. Working at the garden in Afrika Tikkun today was great. I felt like I had finally come to do what I was expecting this trip would be. Which were Service learning and social justice. However, after we had worked on the garden in the morning. We headed off to the community hospital. Before getting there though we walked through Delft, it was surprising to see how many people were up and about. Many people came out of their houses or peeked out of their windows when they saw our group walk past. Some of them said hi, other waved. I was wondering if the people in Delft were expecting something from us, I mean we were a big group and we were on our way to the Community hospital. If I saw someone new walk around my neighborhood, I would have that sense that they were here to do something. As that was going through my mind, at the same time trying to figure out what the people there thought of us. We made it to the hospital. When I think of hospitals back home imaging this place where there are a few people waiting to be seen by a doctor and many nurses there to help. When we walked into the hospital, I had a strange feeling that the hospital was nothing like the hospitals back home. When the sister started talking to us about the situation, of the hospital I wondered how is that in the U.S, there are hundreds of hospitals and people working in them and here in Delft there is the hospital that offers free service to millions of people but only have a limited amount of staff? Back to what the sister was saying, everything she talked about inspired me even more to go home and do something about the situation, whether it was raising money to send or support Afrika Tikkun I feel anything would help. Walking through the hospital was a real revelation. At times, I was afraid to look up and see how many people had been waiting in line just to be seen. I know that many of us as humans show emotions, I am not saying it is a bad thing, but as Anthea said by us crying how is that really helping anyone, I know some of the things we saw today were painful to see and we feel the need to cry, I won't lie I cried too. However, I thought how I could do something about the unfair treatment that people in third world countries have to go through. Many of us like me have done so much just by taking that small step to come to South Africa. I feel that now that we know what is happening, it is up to us to educate others about it so that we can all make a difference in someone's life, even if it is something so small, like building a garden for the community or visiting people and giving them advice. Because those words of advice you give someone might be the only ones they get in their lives.
