Toby and Aukje Brouwer
Married at a young age and blessed with three beautiful children Toby and Aukje lived in an idyllic village that was both comfortable and quite predictable. They never dreamed of moving away from their hometown in Friesland, and yet, that is exactly what they did.
We exchanged the green meadows of Friesland for the fairest Cape in the world, Cape Town. There we embarked on an extraordinary journey, met amazing people, had our hearts broken more than once while providing shelter to street children, and managed a home for children with HIV/AIDS.Aukje Brouwer
