To emphasise how rewarding this placement can be, here is an extract from one of our volunteer stories by Catharine who volunteered with House of All in Bosnia. You can read more on out website under 'News' -> 'Volunteer Stories'.

"It has been a privilege to be part of the community that is the House of All, and to meet and work with truly incredible human beings. For anyone even a little bit interested in getting involved, even the smallest actions can make a huge difference, so just do it!
