MAKE YOUR PRECIOUS TIME COUNT: COME AND HELP!
We are a Canadian family living in Romania trying to make a difference in our backyard.
Old age in the Romanian countryside is a Horror! No running water, biting cold, no hot meals, being snowed in and unable to leave your home for weeks! Peasant farmers without their extended families are left to fend for themselves.
LISA TELEORMAN is a small town near the Danube in desperate need of a helping hand.
Our team is currently establishing an organic farm to offer financial support to the needs of a pay-as-you-can centre for the elderly in LISA, Teleorman, ROMANIA.
WHAT DO WE NEED FROM YOU?:
We need to have painters and help to install two bathrooms with showers. If you know how to mix cement, swing a hammer or dig you are welcome! In addition to construction workers, we need help to pull weeds and clear about 4000m2 of farm land that has not been worked for 10 years.
There is an orchard, a fish pond and a vegetable garden under all the weeds.
We have planted a garden of vegetables for the kitchens and canning, so there is plenty of stuff to do on the grounds.
Any assistance with fund raising would also be appreciated.
We can offer you all meals and accommodation in return for your help.
We do not work on weekends and the days are flexible.
If you have a bicycle (we have only one on site) the Danube river is less than 3km away - great for fishing and bathing.
Our team speak English and French so you can be understood.
Your help is greatly appreciated.If you cannot find your way alone, you are invited to stay with us in Bucharest at our hostel, Vila 11, and we can travel up to LISA together.
PLEASE! We need help.
Special note: We are looking for a winter housesiter for 4 months.
