This is just one picture of the devastation that the tornadoes brought to the Ottawa and Gatineau area last night 😱 I’m safe so are my 2 puppies , but went around some neighbourhoods today and I just started crying to see all the devastation😢. I wish all my fellow Gatineau and Ottawa residents well, stay strong we will get through this...as one of my good friends said and I quote “Tragedy builds resiliency, property can be replaced but lives can not!!” I also want to send a humongous shout out to the power crews, police, firemen, EMTs and just everybody who is helping out and volunteering their time to help those in need and urge those who are unaffected to reach out please and help in anyway you can. A little gesture can mean a lot to those affected right now ! #ottawa #gatineau #tornado #ottawapolice #gatineaupolice #thankyoufirstresponders #volunteer #firefighters #emts #keepsafe #ottawagatineautornado #canada #helpeachother #besafe

VOLUNTOURISM Travel to make a difference - For better or worse By Vilhelm Stokstad “It's exactly like going to Magaluf, except you hug kids for a couple of hours out of your day” - a former volunteer. Volunteering is the new backpacking. It is a booming business with slogans like ”travel to make a difference”. But some of these arranged volunteering trips establish a ”we and them” thinking that can increase the social, cultural and economical gap rather than decrease it. This gets even more evident when the often wealthy volunteers — a volunteering trip often costs several years of annual income in the country of visit — stays in guarded compounds, sometimes with their own chef and maid. As volunteering has become more of a business, many companies care more about profits than actual change. At orphanages, children often need long and stable relationships, but a two week visit by volunteers may result in the opposite. In a school on Zanzibar, to feel more included, volunteers were in charge of the English curriculum. This resulted in a new curriculum every two weeks, denying the children a long term education plan. The ongoing photography based research project Voluntourism aims to challenge visual stereotypes by holding up a mirror on how we (including photojournalists) represent ”the other”. It questions the contrast in behaviour by westerners towards children in Europe and children of other continents and hope to encourage reflection and sustainable solutions for volunteer work. Voluntourism is a project by Vilhelm Stokstad. @vstokstad You can follow the project on www.vilhelmstokstad.com and through #voluntourism. #volunteer #volunteering #volontär #tourism
