Urgent Needs 

Bus Driver for Cana Farm

We need someone to drive the bus at the farm, picking up people from the station, running errands and doing the shopping. The farm is located at Orchard Hills and is open Monday to Thursday. Help on any of the days would be greatly appreciated.
Please contact Dani at

Monday Volunteers

We have an urgent need for volunteers to join us at de Porres on Mondays from 10am till 2pm. You would be joining a team and preparing and sharing lunch with residents at de Porres and a picnic at Green Park. It’s a rewarding experience offering relationships with people from different life experiences. Listening and companionship are precious gifts to bring.
