Many, various, and continuing.
The word's gone out: The Amigos of Ponferrada want to keep the donativo Albergue Domus Dei in Foncebadon open over this winter, so there will be at least one place for pilgrims to stay up there. Hardy volunteers are needed to take two-week stretches on the mountain. For details contact Rafa at rkansas1 @ gmail. com . A tough gig, but very rewarding, too!

My wife and I completed the official hospitalero course at the beginning of the year an we are very keen to devote some time to the the Camino. Fortnightly we are available in the next couple of months.

I have mailed Rafa and will see if he responds.

I have responded to Rafa, but my wife and I are also willing to serve anywhere in Spain. I walked the Camino last year and stayed in donativo's regularly. Arres and Sahagun were particularly memorable.

Hi Rebekah, I've tried the email, without the spaces, but it comes back as not valid. Is there another contact?
Thanks, Mark

Ohiiishe!
Would love to do this but too many commitments at the moment - what is really an eye opener and a gratifying observation is that there IS a demand for winter patronage - I think this is wonderful?

Would that I could. Unfortunately, we are not allowed. Good luck to them. Very noble.

They should require reservation as well, and make sure all apps and websites are updated on this. Otherwise they might get full and pilgrims will get stuck with next destination being 27 km further ahead.

My immediate reaction on seeing this was "if we volunteer, does this mean Europe will let us in?" Wistful / wishful thinking.

Amazing opportunity, in my eyes, Rebekah. Loved Foncebadon and if a Canuck can't take it in winter, who can?? BUT, we're stuck here. Heard today Canada coming off the 'nice list' for entry into EU. :( Hope they find some hardy soul.

Just thinking out aloud? This would be a great opportunity for an unemployed Spanish person who has a sense of adventure and a wish to draw on such an experience. The position may also be a task for a couple?
