DonateNowButton-smFirst we want to say a BIG 'Thank you!' for the gracious and generous support of our donors for all they are doing for each of the My Arms Wide Open community initiatives. As you may know, the My Arms Wide Open® team works as a volunteer organization to support the causes and the initiatives identified by the communities we are invited into, to work with. Without the financial support that each of you, our donors, provide our work would be that much more difficult and we would have to wait to assist the people we do. We are grateful for each of you and all of our supporters.

I believe everything is possible

Written by

I've learned that it is possible


My name is Lundi. I remember meeting Warren and his team in the beginning of 2011 and learning about the program they where going to run, Iziko Labahlali. This was not the first time it was being run in Cradock and it was good to be able to talk to people who had done the program. They seemed different. They talked differently. I remember thinking that I wanted to find out why. I entered the program in March and at first I listened and watched as people spoke and expressed themselves through their art, their words, and their emotions. It started to feel comfortable, safe. I started to participate. I was alone in Cradock through my own choice, far away from my wife and my children. Suddenly, I felt open to changing that.
