    Description

    We, Herman and Randi, emigrated from The Netherlands to Poland in 2007. Having been welcomed and inspired by Poland, we decided it was the perfect place to provide an accommodation in the way of Agritourism. We restored our old farmhouse (1791) with much love, great care and attention to the smallest details. We have run the Agroturystyk with much pleasure and after 12 years, we sold it. Why? Because we are now realizing our real dream!

    We have taken the initiative to set up a non-profit children's project. 'Villa Marleen' in the Polish municipality of Stara Kamienica in southwest Poland. To offer children who suffer from a chronic and/or serious illness, children with a physical and/or mental disability and children who suffer from psychosocial problems a fantastic care-free holiday. A tailor-made holiday for children from all over Europe. We provide respite care and will give parents and caretakers, temporarily a break from caregiving responsibilities.

    At this moment we have started the huge renovation. That is why we are urgently looking for handy people who want to help and build this dream for "our" children. We are looking for good all-rounders: carpenters, bricklayer, plumbers, tilers, painters and experienced hobbyists. Are you interested? Send us a message and indicate what you can do for us and for our project.

    We can provide shelter for people from the beginning of July 2018 (at the moment we are still homeless but in the beginning of July we have our own place to live).

    With best regards,

    Herman & Randi
