Area: UlsterI am an American lost in the brilliant life that Donegal has to offer! I live in the country with my 4 horses, pony, and 3 Jack Russell Terrior (dogs), a little bit of heaven to say the least.... I love to host people from all over the world and exchange cultures, so if you want to come to Ireland and see the country come to me for a visit. I will help you have a nice holiday any way I can. My biggest passion in life is and always has been horses. I see them, smell them, feed them, love them. I don't ride very much these days, but like to have people to hold my horses to work on them. I do massage and chiropractic on them, so if this interests you get in touch. I'm hoping to have 2 healthy foals this spring!
Area: Baden-WürttembergClaus (43) and I (Martina 42) bought a small house from the early 1800s that once used to be a farm. We are busy renovating the house at the moment. We do not have any animals yet. Our small village has about 100 inhabitants and is located in the beautiful are of Hohenlohe in the southern part of Germany. The famous city of Rothenburg is about 30 min, Heidelberg, Stuttgart, Nuremberg are about 60 min by car from our house. We are surrounded by castels and beautiful landscape, ideal for cycling, swimming in the river, hiking etc. Claus is a rock climbing instructor and cliffs are located near Nuremberg and south of Stuttgart. We are baking our own bread in a traditional wood-fired oven which we especially had build in the kitchen and that also is perfect for pizza and our traditional swabian pizza:-)
Area: Cagayan de Oro, MindanaoAbout our Project On December 16, 2011 the island of Mindanao was hit by Typhoon Washi – locally known as “Sendong.” Heavy rains caused destructive flash flooding which killed over 1,200 people and left hundreds more still missing. Nearly 50,000 homes were damaged or destroyed. After more than a year of hard work, we’ve now completed our goal of building 216 high-quality permanent home for displaced families, officially marking the end of Project Cagayan de Oro. With the majority of these newly built homes already occupied, the lucky beneficiary families are now able to re-start their lives in vibrant and safe new communities, well away from the flood-prone Cagayan River. But more than fifteen months since the devastating flash floods swept through this disaster-prone city, thousands of residents are still living in increasingly uncomfortable temporary homes, or depending on friends and family for living space. As time goes by, the temptation to move back to the riverbanks increases; a situation that was once again proven dangerous when another major typhoon hit just a few months ago and flooded many of the same areas. Our Project is the next phase of our Typhoon Sendong response project in Cagayan de Oro, Philippines. We’re building 88 more homes and we need your help! Join us in our efforts to assist the communities affected by giving them a place to call home once again. Volunteering: Project Pagatpat is accepting volunteers immediately until August 12, 2013.
