    for me it would be the first time to volounteer out of my home country. I am good at “farm working” as well as I can easily connect with people.
    I am at my late fifties, and I am ready for some new challenges in my life. I am flexible WITH TIME AND LOCATION. sO YOU CAN “INVITE” me when and where suites you most.
