Volunteering in Lithuania

I was a volunteer in the summer for two months in Šakiai Children’s Home, Lithuania. My task was to take care of the small children, but I also had a lot of activities with the older ones. We played football, went swimming and drank a lot of tee together. The language barrier was a huge challenge for me but also enriching. My conclusion: you don’t have to speak the same language in order to love each other.
