Destin’s Phoenix Catao continues her work on a mission team with Hakima Ministries on the Soysambu Wildlife Conservancy in Nakura, Kenya.

The team also went to the Nakuru City Dump, aka "London Dump," where more than 100 families live and includes children and elderly. The adults usually spend their days sitting on the piles of trash waiting for the next dump truck to arrive so they can scavenge through it. The children all live in the dump and attend a Nursery School nearby. The older children don’t go to school — they go to work.

“I am grateful that they have a place to go to learn,” Catao said. “They were the sweetest. Eye opening at how truly blessed I am to live the life I live.”
