Can 8 days of camp really change a life?
We asked Pastor Brad – one of our tireless volunteers, who organized the UTSS Summer Camp in 2013. Here is what he had to say – “I remember one young boy at camp named Mwigulu. He was the victim of an attack earlier that spring during which he lost his arm.
At the start of camp, he was (understandably!) very reserved and withdrawn, most probably as a result of the trauma he experienced. Shortly after the camp, Vicky from UTSS Tanzania reported that as a direct result of being at camp, he began to come out of his shell. He was asking for help at school and engaging with people. Vicky credits the compassion and care shown to him by the volunteers at camp as the key that began to unlock healing for Mwigulu.
