Most trees grow steadily over a period of years. Not the Chinese bamboo. It doesn't break through the ground for the first four years. Then, in the fifth year, an amazing thing happens. It begins to grow at an astonishing rate. However, if one stopped watering the bamboo anytime during those four years because there was no outward sign of growth, the tiny bamboo shoots would never see the light of day.
The story of the bamboo is the story of Living Compassion Africa.
Paying attention because one cares rather than because it produces an outcome is a true sign of Unconditional Love. This year we celebrate some of the tiny shoots that are testaments to the tremendous growth and transformation that has taken place over years of love and attention being lavished on this community.
