When Life Gives You Lemons by Remya R

By Volunteer Remya R, FHI Chennai 

When life gives you lemons, squeeze the best and make a lemonade goes the saying and we decided to do just that and learnt that every situation not just has a bright side but a brighter side to it. May 2019 event for FHI Chennai and personally to me turned out to be nothing like I had experienced before. When we started off hunting for places for this month’s event, we didn’t know what we were honestly heading to, all we knew was we were going to find a place that lets us visit and spend time with the kids in the month of May where a majority of kids are sent to their families for a couple of weeks. Though we had anticipated this, we still weren’t ready to give up, we spoke to multiple orphanages, NGOs and homes and the answer was the same, “Please visit us the next month”. But we still kept on going and managed to convince an orphanage that had only a handful of kids staying back at the orphanage. Little did we know the magic we were creating for them as well as for us. Throughout the whole process, though we realized the location of the orphanage was quite far from the city, it didn’t stop us. We wanted to make it the best and instil the importance of a healthy body, mind and soul.
