La casa Nueva Life es un lugar con todas las condiciones para una cómoda estadía, de ahí salimos todos los días a las comunidades y para mi fue una experiencia maravillosa, en la que pude compartir con los Wayuu en sus rancherias y también en un centro etnoeducativo, pude compartir algunos de mis conocimientos cómo enfermera con ellos y la acogida fue muy buena, otro día tuvimos una tarde cultural en la que pude ver muchas de sus costumbres y también sus muchas necesidades, me quedé con ganas de volver y programar más actividades, hay muchas cosas por hacer y todas las ideas son bienvenidas.

Ha sido el mejor Voluntariado de Toda mi vida.la fundación está muy organizada y el los espacios para Voluntarios son limpios y cómodos.
Hace calor en Riohacha pero siempre funcionaron los aires acondicionados ..
El anfitrión nos recogió en el aeropuerto y siempre fue muy amable ,respetuoso y colaborador .
En el tema animalista y social , son líderes así que ayudamos en varias de sus tareas y hasta dormimos en una Ranchería.
Fue toda una Gran experiencia, hasta tuvimos día de playa increible.
Hay mucho por hacer allí así que las manos son bienvenidas..

¡Agradecemos mucho tu colaboración, disposición y excelente trabajo! Con tu ayuda logramos una gran visibilidad y esperamos que así, más personas se animen a venir y vivir la experiencia.



¡La mejor experiencia! Este fue mi primer voluntariado y definitivamente fue un lugar maravilloso para iniciar. Las instalaciones son hermosas y los anfitriones supremamente amables y serviciales. No pasé mal día ni mal momento. Durante mi estadía conocí a la comunidad Wayuu y logré aprender de ellos y de sus costumbres. Hay mucho por hacer, así que ¡recomiendo mucho la experiencia!
