Working with Charles on the Myanmar camp project has definitely re-cemented our friendship and I have learned many valuable lessons about focusing and delivering under pressure. I have attended other Diabetic workshops, festivals and camps in various countries and for sure this Diabetes Family Camp was right up there with the best in terms. It genuinely succeeded on key deliverables. These included essential elements such as enriching the lives of our children and their parents that informed, educated and fully entertained pretty much all of us! The best quote for me was when I asked one of the parents what was the best thing that the camp had given her. The lady, who was very shy, whispered something to our interpreter and then hurriedly left the room. She was clearly very emotional. So what did she say? The reply came back: “Your camp has given me hope for my daughter, I am happy and so tired.”
