From the bloggers at Roadtreking.
One of the many things I love about working as Roadtrek’s marketing director is meeting and talking to our owners and listening to their incredible stories. Every Roadtrek owner has a unique and personal story about why they wanted to own a Roadtrek and live the Roadtreking lifestyle. My colleagues and I recently had a special opportunity to meet Camilla as she took possession of her new RS Adventurous, her story held special meaning to all of us and we just had to meet her and hear her incredible life story.
She was born in Jamaica in 1950 to Trinidadian parents, in the late 60’s her family immigrated to Canada and in the late 70’s she met and worked with Mother Theresa, an encounter that changed her life forever.
After meeting Mother Theresa, she found her passion and devoted her life to helping those in need, serving the poor and homeless in Toronto and globally. An avid world traveller, her resume of humanitarian work is incredible, from being part of the team that built the Vincent Paul community homes in the 70’s, sponsoring, housing and resettling African refuges in the 80’s and 90’s, trekking through the desert regions of Kenya with the Nirmala Sisters and serving alongside the Oblates in Sri Lanka, helping those left homeless after the Tsunami in 2004.
