A story about volunteering for a homeless charity in London
A short fragment of the story

I remember the morning I first volunteered for a homeless charity like it was yesterday. It was a sunny day, and I had a feeling of excitement mixed with a little bit of nervousness.

My friend had been volunteering there for a while, and seeing homeless people on the streets had always upset me as I didn’t know how to help, so I decided to go along with her to volunteer. It felt surreal that I was finally going to do something to help, and I had no idea what to expect.
