There are many social issues in the communities through which we travel around Mongolia. There are many people living in poverty, there are single parents who often struggle to feed, clothe and educate their children and families of disabled children often struggle to give their children the best healthcare and opportunities they can. As such, poverty and disability are two areas where Meg’s Adventure have chosen to support a movement towards positive change in the communities in which we travel.
Meg began by volunteering at the state run orphanage, it made her sad to see many young children without a home or family. Meg hopes these children are adopted before they begin to have childhood memories. Meg enjoys seeing them happy when they receive small gifts. However, without their parents it is apparent that there is sadness in the children’s eyes.
Meg undertook research on different charities in Mongolia, mostly involving children and single parents. As a result of the research she has instigated different activities in the past few years including: Donations for the State Orphanage, supplying wheelchairs, donations for single parents and the Association of Parents with disabled children. Meg loves to think of it as only the beginning of her work and is expanding her activities every year where possible.
