Finding Rachel is a project which helps to give financial support, medical care, running water and food to maids who are left unemployed after their employers emmigrated leaving them behind. Now living in villages in basic housing and farming to support themselves and their families. Finding Rachel is the name of my project after having gone back to my maids village after having left South Africa for 10 years. I found Rachel and was shocked to see the conditions of the woman who looked after me. I left for a better life, but what was left behind was a surrogate mother with almost nothing. This project is my way to honour the hard work, love and care these maids gave to those they helped raise.
