Volunteering is a wonderful thing and the benefits of volunteering are enormous: from bringing fun and fulfillment into your life to making new friends and increasing your social and relationship skills.
The skills and knowledge of doctors, engineers, social workers and scientists are desperately needed by some of the world’s poorest countries.
