Volunteers are people like you and me……
“The patients are amazing to work with and show so much appreciation and love towards the volunteers; it’s really nice to get a great big hug especially when you are feeling a bit home sick.”
“Many things about life here are really hard…. but having said that, I never had a job that I love as much as this one and have never felt that what I do in my working day is as important as what I do now. It is hard to believe you can get as attached to a group of people in 4 months as I feel to the patients in the hospital.”
“There are pictures in my head which disturb me and which I believe will stay with me for a long time. I hope they do, I hope I don't forget this feeling because as long as I feel this way I know I won’t let the things I have seen remain unchanged.”
“I am so so glad I came here, I am not sure how but I know that this experience and the people I have met and come to love so much have marked me so I will never be the same.”
Do you have what it takes….?
