Resumo: Impressions of EVS volunteer Catharina from Austria who was volunteering in this Shelter from the beginning of January 2011 till the beginning of July 2011 (6 months):
“I am working in the Caritas Mother and Child Care Shelter, and I am looking after babies while mothers have to go to lessons or if they have to go to somewhere else. I also cook sometimes with mothers and I am thinking about some little other projects I can do together with mothers to get more contact to them. But it`s a bit difficult, because they are not talking English because of a bad education, and I am not able to communicate in Lithuanian. Sometimes this problem is quite hard for me, because I really want to talk to them, to talk about the babies or just to get to know them better. But sometimes they try to speak some English words, then I am allways really happy, because so I can see, that they also want to talk to me. It would be also nice to communicate with them, to get to know their problems. Most of time I even don’t know why the mothers are here, which special problems they had. But when I know it I always feel very sorry for them and have to think about it a lot. I enjoy the work there, I really fell in love with the babies and I hope that I can manage sometime to talk more to the mothers.“
