“My mum and I had always dreamed of volunteering abroad so we were delighted when the opportunity came up for us to work together with The Hope Foundation in the summer of 2019.”
We would like to share some observations on this pandemic from Kolkata, written by a man we have known for many years, an Irishman who calls Kolkata home – Jim McGinniss. Jim is a volunteer who has worked with the Missionaries of Charity for the last 22 years in Kolkata, looking after the homeless population in the railway stations, mainly Howrah and Sealdah Station. Jim kindly sent a few words of his experience during the Covid-19 outbreak to share.
