First days of work

After two weeks of introduction and approach to the local community we have finally started doing some work. I stayed for a couple of hours in a day centre for homeless and poor people (Kathy’s Centre). There, I was mainly playing with some children and talking with young people that go regularly to the centre to spend some time in a nice and warm atmosphere as well as to have lunch or dinner and access to basic facilities such as showers or washing machines. My first impression about the work that is being done in this centre is really good and I’m very motivated to start helping there and try to develop some projects with them.

Apart from the work, my first weeks in Romania have been quite interesting and fun, because I really enjoy meeting new people, new cities, new food, new music, different customs…
