We Care

If you’ve been to any destination in Asia, you’re sure to find tired looking street dogs roaming. It’s a terrible thing to witness and something that will pull on the heartstrings of even the toughest humans. Volunteering your time with a local charity is just one of the ways to combat the problem. Tired? Not me… Just happy. Sri Lanka is no different, you’ll find these pooches in the shade during the mid day sun, basking and energy less from…

Not your Typical Wellness Retreat This post originally appeared on The Travel Project on 19 February 2018 Sri Lanka has been the talk of the town lately. With deep rainforests, stunning stretches of white beaches, vast plains, and ancient temples from its buddhist history, it is the perfect place to find balance and focus. It still remains relatively undiscovered; drawing those who really want to connect with the authenticity of a place, rather than the shoestring guide version. Our favourite…

Week 2 in Sri Lanka by Rebecca Plant

November 23, 2015 | WECare in Sri Lanka

My second week in Sri Lanka was a bit more hard hitting than the first.

We named her Saffy! Somebody had thrown boiling water all over her back and neck. She was very weak and her back was a mess,…

Update from Rebecca Plant RVN – Week 1 in Sri Lanka!

November 12, 2015 | WECare in Sri Lanka

Life has totally changed for me! I’m currently living in a hotel room with a semi open bathroom which allows the sound of the ocean and the jungle noise to be heard all day long! We’re right on the south coast in a place called Talalla, it’s absolutely beautiful. The beach is filled with street dogs playing in the sand and lots of fishing boats. Life is very different to the North East here. For a start the driving is…
