you to give up your time and just a bit of money and help those
less fortunate. Yet through helping others you will gain so much

What are the meals and accommodation like?
We strive to offer outstanding value to our volunteers. We believe
you'll like the facilities and meals -- eat healthy, tasty local
food (including the local specialty of crayfish from the lake
if you'd like) as you stay at a stone's throw (yes, just a few
meters) from beautiful Lake Bunyonyi.

according to your doctor's instruction before visiting the affected
