Conor O’ Hare is a long- term resident of Camphill Community Mourne Grange. The community is situated where the Mountain of Mourne sweep down to the Irish sea. Conor has been volunteering with Tools for Solidarity for roughly 25 yrs. Before Mourne Grange established its own workshop, he travelled once a week to the Belfast workshop to volunteer there. Conor is a big part of the community Tools for Solidarity workshop. He has taken on the role of chief sand blaster, so lots of builders’ trowels get his full attention.
“Over the years I have come to really appreciate the opportunity to be involved with Tools for Solidarity. To be involved with other volunteers to try and improve the life of others less fortunate than ourselves. I have great admiration for the people with physical disabilities in Malawi, how they are determined to help themselves and their families despite their circumstances.”
