Amalie Bruun has travelled on every volunteer trip to build in Sri Lanka since her first time in 2009. Her contribution is incredible and so is her love for the work we do and the people of Sri Lanka. Amalie’s full-time job is managing all the logistical and financial aspects of the production of a commercial or other content. As part of a recent assignment, she visited Sri Lanka and wrote this blog for us.
Our volunteers share some of their experiences and memorable photos.
Last April, while building homes for two families in need in Sri Lanka, the volunteers of Team 15 learned about another family living in a desperate situation.
We arrived in Lima in the early morning hours. We were picked up and taken to our hotel where we promptly checked in and went to sleep.
After a few hours of rest and some wandering Miraflores, we were picked up at the hotel by our tour guide, Astrid, from Llama Path. We were escorted by bus passed the Leap the Monk and La Herradura beach, two interesting tourist stops in Lima.
On this February trip led by Cathy Greven, a DWC team is working in the Tangalle region of Sri Lanka with Navajeevana, our non-profit, in-country host partner. Specifically, volunteers are building a day care and bus shelter that will make a big difference to people needing Navajeevana’s services.
