In Cartagena, if poverty doesn't delicately remind you of its presence with its aromas, it thrusts itself at you in the form of the faces of its people. In my search for purpose in my volunteer opportunities here, I struggled with limited time and resources. I found my biggest obstacle to be a desire to reach ...
