Here is Celina’s most recent update regarding her splendid volunteering work and the link to the relevant video:

Hope all is well in Sráid an Mhuilinn?! I have successfully completed the 1st part of my volunteering so I thought it best to send an update back.

I arrived into Delhi at about 3.40AM and was escorted to very basic accommodation in the centre, it was a total culture shock and a whole new world. I was here for about 2 days and then got a 14hour sleeper train to Pathankot in Himachal Pradesh and then about a 4hr car ride to the Idex volunteering house in Bundla, Palampur, I stayed here for the duration of the project, when I arrived there was an older lady, Barbara from Wicklow, just finishing a woman empowerment project then I was on my own until the last week when a travelling group and another volunteer arrived.

“Where the Road Takes Me” at 7 This Evening on C103

We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information on this evening’s programme.  (S.R.)

Born in Kilnap Place in Farranree on the Northside of Cork City, Liam P
