City Hearts, Italian food and Bole Hills – our head of services Louise Durham spoke to the Sheffield Telegraph about her favourite things in Sheffield…
“Little did I know that volunteering at City Hearts as a student in 2006 would change my life in such a profound way, helping to forge what I now feel is my life’s mission to help those who have lost hope and vision.
I think my Christian faith has also been fundamental in my motivation to help others. I am a firm believer that no problem is too big to overcome; sometimes it is just a matter of restoring safety, hope and security to people which can help them see there is another way. I will never forget one of my first experiences of meeting a survivor of human trafficking. She asked me to confirm what country she was in and was overwhelmed by having her own bedroom and clean pyjamas.
That image stays with me and always motivates me to help others who have had their freedom robbed from them.”
