A Life Changing Experience

In this piece from 2005, we look back on a piece with the Galway hurler Alan Kerins who took three-months unpaid leave of absence from his job as a physiotherapist to work on an outreach programme with the Presentation Sisters at the Cheshire Home in Mongu, the main township of Western Province in Zambia. The township lies on the edge of the Kalahari Desert in the poorest region of the country. What Alan saw there triggered a fundraising campaign that has since helped change lives and futures forever. Miriam Gormally asked Alan to tell his story.
