“In Congo I could never wash dishes.  We lived in homes with no running water and we had to crouch down and wash dishes on the ground, in a basin.  Because of my disability I can’t crouch down on the ground, so I couldn’t do the dishes.  Here I can pull up a chair to the sink and wash dishes!  It feels great!”
