Emma Tallon made her first trip to Sri Lanka in November 2018. She was volunteering with Habitat for Humanity through her organization – Morgans. Emma and her team of 10 were able to raise just under $50,000 to support Habitat for Humanity Sri Lanka.
Although Emma was aware that she will be volunteering to help less fortunate families, the conditions in which these homeowners survive were lot harsher than she expected which Emma found to be mind-boggling.
Bonding with the homeowners was a memorable experience for Emma; she especially connected with the daughter of the first homeowner she met and couldn’t believe how the homeowners manage to overcome the communication barriers between them and get their message across.
Emma was touched by the homeowner’s hospitality and how with almost nothing, the homeowners never fail to smile and spread love and kindness
