In our second edition of 'Hope Keepers' we're heading to sunny and windy, Honduras!
Meet the incredible Cathy.
Her days are filled with tragedy and hope. She's witnessed heartbreak we can't really imagine. She understands the pangs of anxiety, suddenly not being able to breathe and has often wondered, 'Will this ever get better?'.
Her 'hope-keeping' tips are personal, relevant and can be applied easily into your every day.
Scroll and press play. Oh and don't mind the wind, it was a crazy day when we filmed, either way, hope pursues in spite of the circumstances, right :)
Breathe, it will pass & know your place in the bigger story!
For several years Cathy has been making space for children's voices and their stories. She has lived and worked through multiple natural disasters including the recent hurricanes ETA & IOTA. She is gutsy, bold and whoa, do not get in her way when she's advocating for children and families!
