What makes this project so incredible is it gives the volunteer a chance to help everyone from young to old to women to the disabled. Homelessness can effect anyone whether the cause being substance abuse, mental health problems, unemployment, domestic abuse, natural disasters or forced eviction. This project gives the volunteers the opportunity to help, reach out and interact with all types of people. In one day you could help feed around 200 men, women and children. It is important to note that because of the small amount of time this project takes (in regards to the total week), volunteers will also have to involve themselves on another placement to ensure they are busy throughout the week.

PLACEMENT: Hogar Madre Teresa This feed the homeless project is every Wednesday night at 7.00pm the volunteers will spend 2 hours helping, looking after and feeding the homeless of Bogota with the staff of Hogar de Cristo. The volunteers can have a go at cooking the food if they wish, they then hand the food out and clean up afterwards. It is an amazing experience to help those really in need, as well as being a great way to learn some Spanish. Our soup kitchen project is very similar and takes place Monday to Friday with the staff of Hogar Madre Teresa at 12.00pm.
