    Hello. How can I be a member of volunteer work

    • Tytti sanoo:

      Hello Aissa
      Because of the Korona-situation it is forbidden to take any volunteers to Fallkulla. Fallkulla is a Youth house for children from the age 9-17, owned by Helsinki city. All Youth houses in Finland are closed at the moment, so it is also not possible to take here any volunteers. You can contact us again after the Korona-epidemia is over.
