Volunteering

It is better to give than to take. This motto is known to all who were given a helping hand in a dire need. If you recognize this feeling, share it with our camp’s participants, so that they can experience the good residing in you. You can change the lives of others and become an example for future generations of volunteers!

Comments

Before, during Physical Education classes I would do everything to disappear from the teacher’s line of sight and I would run those blasted laps with great effort. I never imagined that one day my running could help gather donations and that the preparations for it would become the best months of my life! It’s a gift from life, from the children under Bator Tabor’s care.

Each month I wait for the day of the workshop, which brings so much good to everyone who participates in it. Upon entering the wards, you forget everything else. Only here and now is important. Every shared moment… each game… every drawing bring so much happiness to both the kids and the adults. The volunteers and children. Time stops. You don’t see suffering… you don’t see tears… there is only joy… laughter… playing… and at the end of the day you think this is what it’s all about. And you impatiently wait for the next day like this.

Time spent at the camp is an amazing, but also educational, experience. There is always something new and unexpected happening. It allows me to discover a lot about myself and to grow.
