Volunteering in South America


Hi, my name is Janina and I am volunteering in Lima, Peru where I work in a children's home.

When I first came here, everything was new to me: the culture, the language and the environment. But when I arrived at the house, the children welcomed me as if they had known me for a long time. Their open and warm nature made it very easy for me to take them into my heart and feel at home here.
Despite the pandemic, (we are still in partial lockdown) we try to do as much as possible with the children. Besides everyday things like cleaning, cooking and washing, we take trips to the beach, parks or just dance and sing together in the house. Being a part of this big family is such a cool experience and really special.
