Building in Albania24 Oct 2011
Transition Year student Brian Burke spent the first week of October in Albania as part of the “Heart to Hand” charity. This group works with the Missionaries of Charity to help the poorest of the poor in countries such as Albania, Bosnia, Moldova and Romania. This year the group of twenty-seven volunteers constructed a multi-purpose building to serve as a school, church and community centre in in the city of Durres. They built also a new home for a family in the town of Lac and roofed and fitted windows to two other family homes. `Well done` to Brian and his fellow volunteers.
