    We are a Brasilian family out of standard that lives in a country house where we plant organic vegetables and fruit. Our life is a little different from others because of an accident that Cláudio (dad) had suffer and took his movements and capability of talking but he is conscious of reallity. The experience of living and helping him teaches a lot about life. Besides Cláudio, also living in our house are Flávia (mom) an english teacher for over 30 years, Bernadete (grandma), Tatiane (daugther), an 18 years old arts student and Sérgio (son) an 23 years old forest engineer, Cláudia that works in the house for 20 years and several nurses that are responsable for Cláudio needs.

    We expect from the volunteers that they have interest in helping with the cultivation of the fruits and vegetables, house care and with Cláudio activities. We wont have rules, the volunteers functions will be set up with the exchange of ideas and the volunteer interest and capability.
