The Experience

This project is to take care of the dogs in the centre (around 300) because their life conditions are pretty bad, even if the Burmese people feed them and try to take care of them as much as they can with their lack means. Most of the dogs have infected wounds, skin disease and sexual infections. More information here: https://thabarwavolunteering.com/volunteering/dog-care/

It was great!
You need some time to get to know everything. There is so much to do and I can not put in words how it makes you feel. It is an amazing and inspiring place witch you have to experience yourself to understand. I learned a lot eventhough I was only there for two days. I can recommend it, you learn so much and can try so many things, plus you get to know the locals and experience how they live.

It's a place you can't quite put down in words. It felt like being a part of a village and really living with the locals, while serving the community in various meaningful ways. You are free to contribute as much as you want without any judgement. Unforgettable.

It was an amazing experience!! On the first day I was shocked because the cultural differences, but the other days I started to love it, it was my first experience helping other, and see the grateful and happy patients was the best part! But it’s not easy, you really have to be interesting in helping others and give your time full time a day!
All the volunteers are super nice and they teach you all the activities that you want to do! I super the recommend this social experience!

Thabarwa is a home out of our home.
My first experience volunteering couldn't have been better.
It takes us a time to adapt to the place, is hard to see the reality of those people and why life is so easy for ones and so hard for others, but for sure was the best experience ever, we learn how to see life differently and how amazing is to help people.
