@bruwomendo:"About poverty in Brunei: It can be almost anyone in Brunei, seeing as how we have a big problem of debt. Houses on top of the small Indian shops, places we may miss.. May house 10 people who aren't earning anything.It was an eye opener to meet a small humble family that we visited. Two neneks who made $10 a day to sell nasi katok. Live in a tiny room with no bed with their 4 grandchildren..And this is BRUNEI. A lot of people will think yes, Brunei is rich. But Bruneians? There are some of us who have it less than most." - Dk Hanna Afiqah binti Pg Hassanal Ali Saifuddin. ☄
This is Hj Salim and his beloved wife who have tirelessly looked over their 4 grandchildren with the means they are capable of. The very friendly Nenek nenek that we met today, tapi nenek inda liat camera!

Day 7 - the final countdown.

So we decided that we would stick to rooibos and Chinese green tea this week as it is dirt cheap which means we've had no coffee in the last week, it was way out of our budget - eeeeek!! I must admit I'm looking forward to a nice cup of Joe tomorrow but have coped surprisingly well without it. Will definitely relook at the habitual morning coffee!

Just a group of teens giving up their weekend for 24 hours of poverty awareness. No cell phones. No change of clothes. No shoes. Limited food. They just walked a mile for water and now they're washing each others feet. Almost 2 billion people on earth have to walk 1 km to have access to any water- swamp, river, etc. People don't live like we do! #povertyawareness #bethankful

Giving back to the community is an integral part of our team. •

On top of our passion for personal wellness and growth, we are dedicated to empowering our surrounding communities as well as the underprivileged- especially children and animals. We believe those with the smallest voices need our care the most. •

Here are some of my (Juliana's) favorite shots from my time in Puntarenas, Costa Rica's Hogar Christiano orphanage. My time here had a large impact on my life and taught me lessons in humility, gratitude, and compassion. •

I plan on returning in the next few months to check in on these amazing children. If you would like to learn more about this particular orphanage, visit www.volunteerbasecamp.com/hogar-christiano

“I used to scavenge through trash everyday in order to earn money. But most of the time, it was dangerous because you can get hit by a truck or you can get a wound and it will get infected because of the trash. I was actually hit by a motorcycle before and I had wounds all over. But now I don’t scavenge every day because I study at the Fairplay Center instead. It’s so fun here because I learn a lot of things I didn’t know before! Like math, history, multiplication, soccer, science; things like that! And my teacher, Kuya Mon, is really nice; I see him as my best friend now. When I grow up, I want to be like Kuya Mon. I want to be a teacher so I can teach plenty of other kids.” , Obray, 12 years old.

“There are 16 of us children in the family; I’m the 6th. I want to be rich so I can help our family. It’s difficult being in a big family. It’s a good thing our older brother helps us. He’s 28 years old already and he gives us money whenever he receives his salary. But he left the house already because our parents always fight. He felt disturbed. So now it’s just us younger children left with our parents.”, Justin, 12 years old.

“There are 16 of us children in the family; I’m the 8th. It’s fun having a lot of siblings but the youngest always asks money from me. That’s okay but I often lose my own money so giving the few that I have left to my sibling is hard on me. But if I can choose, I would still choose to have a lot of siblings because I want to live in a house with a lot of people. It’s because I’m scared of monsters; when there are many people in a house, the monsters won’t get to you.”, Gerald, 9 years old.

“The saddest experience I’ve ever had was when our youngest sibling passed away. It was a particularly difficult time because he was still a baby. Now I don’t have anyone to cuddle with. But just recently, the happiness is slowly coming back because I am able to go to the Fairplay Center. I feel happy there because I always learn a lot of new things. And I get to do it with my friends and siblings so it’s even more fun. All of us kids also eat together everyday. And the food is free and delicious! Now I have a new dream, for me to finally learn how to read in English. I practice everyday so I can reach that dream.”, Kakay, 15 years old.

“When I grow up, I want to be a doctor so I can give my father a comfortable life. He’s never in the house because he’s always working. He scavenges under the sun the whole day. During my last birthday, he wasn’t even there. Of course I’m sad but I understand why he has to do it. Which is why I will do everything I can in order to help. But before I become a doctor, I need to learn how to speak English better. That’s what I’m focusing on in my studies right now.”, Aira, 15 years old.

Great to see some of the portraits we took for @povertychild and @fairplayforall getting published. The work both organisations are doing is amazing. Such amazing kids. ・・・
“There are 16 of us children in the family. I’m the 7th child. We’re happy because we are so many in the family but it’s also difficult because I often have to take care of the younger children. And they always ask money from me. But I still love them. When I grow up I want to be a doctor so I can cure my siblings when they get sick, especially my brother who is always coughing and who has difficulty breathing.”, Angel, 11 years old.

We live in a world with a victim-blaming mindset where we think "oh if they're poor, they did it to themselves and they deserve it", when really we should be blaming the environment. Blame the institutions that allow such poverty to exist. Because this world has more than enough resources to feed and house every single person, and it's absolutely inhumane to deny any human being the right to the basic necessities of food or shelter. .
