Poppy Langdon Down Volunteers in Romania

I went with a brilliant group to Romania and I hope we will all stay in touch. The Oyster representative is the most amazing coordinator who works way beyond his job description to make sure we had a brilliant experience in Romania and got everything out of the experience that we had hoped for.

The flat we stayed in was great and really felt like home after 3 months and Brasov is a lovely town to be living in, right in the mountains with lots to see and do and a good place to go out in the evenings. We had great weekends visiting other towns as we were keen to see some of Romania.

I loved working on the respiratory ward in the hospital every morning and each afternoon in the family houses (orphanages). It broke up your day doing different things. Its great when you feel like you have made even a very small difference to one of these children's lives or when you get all the children at a family house doing an activity like head, shoulders, knees and toes, all joining in and having fun.

I would recommend this to anyone as it had been the best thing I have done in my life and I would love to go back. It has allowed me to become more independent and I now feel much more ready to go to university next year.
