Volunteering at Samaaria

After guys to Koolikodu were off the bus, there were only left five of us and some participants to
Kärdla's volunteering bus. I'm very happy I had such a great and little group of people to come with me to help a lovely lady who is helping Hiiumaa's old, homeless and sick people. THANK YOU IAN, EDGARAS, ROSA and ANDREI! You were great! :)

When we arrived to Samaaria second-hand shop, which also was a shelter for people, who have had rough life for some reasons (illness, disability, homeless etc), we firstly had a great tour
through the building. Inhabitants of this shelter lived in very nice rooms, 2-3 person in one room. Living conditions there were great and we all were happy that Hiiumaa has such place for people who need help :)
After the tour lovely manager of this home, as I like it call, gave us our works. Rosa was cleaning the windows inside the house, Ian and Edgaras cut the heck, me and Andrei cleaned the basement. I have to say that work wasn't the easiest one but we all managed it well.
Manager was really pleased with us. She didn't think we could do all the works that fast. She offered us DELICIOUS lunch, cake, tea and gave us presents too. We also had some time to play outside with some fun toys :P

We were so happy and satisfied that we had the chance to do something good for these people.
After this day I personally understood how good it really is to do that kind of volunteering job. It makes you feel much more special and it makes people happy.

Thank you again Ian, Edgaras, Rosa and Andrei for this wonderful day! The manager is really happy that we visited her and helped her :)
