(Intern Report) March 9 2013 – cleanup efforts in Joyo Village

In Joyo Village and surrounding area a lot of things got destroyed by the heavy rainfall and the floodwaters last year. Because of landslip some rice fields got damaged and have to be restored before they can be used again.

On March 9th we helped with a group of thirteen volunteers to remove dirt from one of those fields and tried to rebuild some of the damaged paths with stones and sand. The cleanup efforts started at 10am and finished around 5 o`clock in the afternoon. Even the work on the field was really exhausting everybody enjoyed their time and was glad to spend their free day to help the people from Joyo Village.

In the end it was just a little piece of restoring the area but it feels very good to be a small part of the whole reestablishment.
