My sister-in-law lives in Chile and she recently took her 3 little girls and volunteered at an orphanage there. You can read about it here.
It is always humbling to hear about people who have so little or the suffering of innocents and put our lives into perspective. I can't stop thinking about those kids and wondering what to do.
It also reminds me that I don't have to go a thousand miles away in a foreign country to find these intense needs. They are right here as well.
