I just posted the on FaceBook and it made me proud – why? because the first question from the ┬ávast majority of our volunteers is :

“Where can I be of most help”?

help

“my reaction to the news from Aleppo – I want to go there now and help – but you know what I would be a hinderance not a help – I have no medical skills – I have no counselling skills – i am not an engineeer -I am certainly no peacemaker – I do not speak the language(s) – indeed I have no skills that they need at the moment – BUT I know I have skills that could help somewhere

– these are the rules we should apply when we plan our volunteer travel
