SummaryAfter the severe earthquakes in Croatia in 2020/2021, many people are still without a decent shelter. Help to build sustainable wooden houses for them!
Together in an aid alliance with the German Malteser Foreign Aid Service "Maltese Auslandsdienst" and local partners, we support the Austrian relief organisation "Bauern helfen Bauern"(BHB) in the construction of simple wooden houses, which serve the affected people as full-fledged shelters for decades to replace their destroyed or collapsed buildings. BhB has been working according to this model in the region since the Balkan War and enjoys the highest reputation nationwide. With the help of this aid alliance more than 80 wooden houses has been already built.
We are now looking for new volunteers who are willing to help with the construction of these houses.
Under the guidance of experts, the volunteers will build a house within 4-5 days. The volunteers do not need any special previous knowledge. Accommodation for the duration of the aid mission can be organised by the volunteers themselves, but we willbe pleased to provide support if required.
