I look forward to coming to CDC again and will definitely bring more friends as it is definitely an experience worth sharing. Once again thank you so much for everything. God bless you and the CDC team for your work.

I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to be able to be there for some of the children. They may not remember me due to the short period of time I spend with them, but I will certainly remember them and I am honestly blessed to be able to bring smiles on their faces, even if only for a little while.

I am definitely looking forward to returning VERY SOON when I can and hopefully, this time round, I will be able to stay around longer and contribute more! 🙂 I feel really blessed to have met all of you in my life! Cheers to CDC!
