David Archuleta checked in with fans on his YouTube channel, talking about his trip to India for World Leprosy Day, volunteering with Rising Star Outreach. Archuleta called the experience life changing and made him appreciate things more.
“It’s just amazing to see where these people have come from,” the ‘American Idol’ alum said about the leprosy sufferers. “From begging on the street, not allowed to be in these communities and having the jobs and getting education that they need. They’re taken from the streets to having their jobs from these loans not just providing for themselves but for their families as well and these kids getting an education, learning and being able to learn English, which is very important for job opportunities and it was so cool to be a part of and meet these kids.”
