Have a question? Get in touch:

For more than 25 years, Habitat Romania has been working beside families and communities in need, to improve their living conditions. This includes building and renovating homes and community centres, and advocating for better housing policies.

Funds raised in Ireland are supporting Habitat Romania's work in communities across the country. In summer 2023, a team of volunteers from across Ireland will travel to Romania to support this life-changing work.

Volunteers will: 

SEE the shocking reality of poverty housing

SERVE families and communities in need

SPEAK out for safe shelter

Supporting Habitat's Work

The budget includes a non-refundable deposit, fights, in-country expenses and a minimum donation towards Habitat’s work. We ask everyone to personally contribute a minimum of £/€500 towards their logistics costs and to raise more than the minimum as every penny makes a huge difference to families in need. We have lots of ideas and resources to support fundraising. 

Need to Know

Where will I stay?

Accommodation will be clean and safe; usually a modest hotel or guest house.  Local Habitat staff will organise transport to and from the work site.

What will I eat?

You will have the opportunity to try local food but in most cases you will have access to food you will be familiar with too! Bottled water will be provided to keep you hydrated.  Include allergies or specific requirements in your application form.

What age do I have to be to take part?

You must be 16 and over to join the team. If you are older than 75, get in touch to discuss insurance.
