Work or Volunteer in Portugal

Lisbon, PortugalLisbon, Portugal  

I have always been interested in working abroad. To my delight I have found several exciting opportunities in Portugal.

In my early 30s I worked overseas with UNICEF – MALAWI.  A small country in East Africa.This was before Madonna made it infamous through her baby adoption.My decision to work overseas was a BIG MOVE.  I quit my job, left a relationship, and said goodbye to family and friends.It was an amazing 2 years! Full of adventure.

My experience overseas involved working with rural communities to promote the country’s National Health Program on maternal and child well-being; including immunization.malawi 62 Beautiful sweet girls (photo credit)

    Would you know of any volunteer work please?
    I am in trouble here and I cannot find a way out.
    I am at camping Albufeira do Maranhao in Avis as Happy Days Goldfinder, because that’s the name on my passport.
    I owe 2 months rent so I cannot leave without paying.
    I have a tent and a car, a good car, I paid £2795 1 year ago.
    I have tried selling the car but the garage will only give me 300 euro, which will not help my situation.
    I am writing a book and doing an online course.
    I do not drink or take drugs of any kind, except tea.
    I am willing to work for food and accommodation.
    I came here to cure Pneumonia, that worked.
    The job I was doing stopped paying me in March and I have been struggling since.
    I managed to pay off most of the campsite rent but I am now behind, with no money.
    I have a couple of days food left.
    I can help but I need help first.
