Your Holiness, or as I would rather prefer to say, Dear Friend,

Watching you and Archbishop Tutu share your joie de vivre was just the story I needed to hear just a week before I left for the Ukrainian border at Vysne Nemecke in Eastern Slovakia to help the Ukrainian refugees who were coming over into Slovakia.

Was truly amazing and heartening to see the number of young volunteers there willing to spend long days and nights helping the refugees.

Helping the women, children and the elderly in various ways was immensely gratifying for me personally, and I dedicate those ten days of work to you and Archbishop Tutu.

My humble namaskara !
