¡La mejor primera experiencia como voluntaria!
Legna me explicó súper bien las tareas, fue comprensiva y atenta. El resto de los voluntarios fueron amigables; me la pasé muy bien y disfruté mucho estar en un lugar lleno de paz y con una vista maravillosa.

Creo que nadie se merece la humillación ni la deshonra que viví durante aquellos días. Al llegar me sentí incómodo con otro voluntario de 40 años que es amigo de la dueña Legna, y quien al quinto día de mi estancia, me acusó de robo solo porque compartíamos cuarto. Al no haber cámaras en el pasillo nunca se comprobó quién tomó su dinero, por lo que me botaron del lugar y me revisaron todas las cosas como si yo fuera un ladrón. En aquel entonces yo no conocía el lugar, por lo que quedé abandonado en un lugar. Le pido a los demás voluntarios que me escriban si necesitan ayuda o mayor información
