Kaveri-Kammari (Chamber of Friends)
Kaveri-Kammari is the central base for the well-being work volunteers carry out, an exchange point for volunteer work and a low-threshold meeting place for Espoonlahti residents of all ages. Kaveri-Kammari's aim is to provide help in acute need as quickly as possible, flexibly, non-bureaucratically and free-of-charge. Kaveri-Kammari members are on duty twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays from 10 am to 12 am. Our weekly meeting is on Mondays from 10 am to 12 am at Kivenkolo. If you need help or are interested in providing help, please contact us or come and visit.
