I volunteered at the Donkey Sanctuary for 4 months. What a great experience! Instead of helping people from behind a desk, I now helped and looked after donkeys outdoors.
The warm weather in combination with the physical activities make it quite a challenge, but have provided me with an enormously satisfied feeling at the end of the day.
The donkeys all have their own will and character and that makes it fun to get to know them and work with them. The love and enthusiasm you get in return from these animals is priceless and that is why I am very grateful to have been able to experience this.
Regarding accommodation, expenses and other practical matters, everything is well organized for the volunteers and Marina is always willing to help, so that's great!
