Non-smokers with a driving license for over 3 years and aged 23 or above can use charity vehicles for insurance purposes.

Update – June 2023 โ€“ A gentle woman living alone in the mountains of Cyprus is seeking experienced assistance for three months due to impending surgery. She runs a cat and dog rescue from their home and requires two helpers, preferably friends or a couple, to take over daily tasks. These tasks include feeding and cleaning animals, giving medicines, maintaining the home and garden, walking dogs, driving to the vet, doing weekly shopping, feeding cat colonies, and providing assistance during the recovery period post-surgery.


The helpers must have significant experience working with cats and dogs, possess good memory and organizational skills, be fit and healthy due to heavy lifting requirements, and must be non-smokers. A valid driver’s license is necessary, with the confidence to drive off-road abroad using a double cabin truck.

The location offers the opportunity to experience nature, enjoy beautiful views and the peace of the countryside.
