This is an excerpt from the article:
Nadomak Sunca, Istria, Croatia: An unusual opportunity to WWOOF for a children’s NGO. Nadomak Sunca was set up in 1993, during the war in the former Yugoslavia, to provide long-term foster families for children who had been orphaned or otherwise displaced. Their work continues with disadvantaged youngsters. WWOOFers work in the organic garden, which feeds the foster families, and help out with the children’s therapeutic activities such as horseriding and gardening. Minimum stay is three months and there are some visa restrictions.
Getting there: Take the train to Trieste in north-eastern Italy. Then take a bus to Buje, where the hosts will pick you up. The bus journey takes around an hour.
