It’s also a lot of fun and a great way to meet new people and make new friends.
Children in Crossfire’s success is built on the goodwill of those who give their time and energy to our cause – our dedicated volunteers. Their efforts – especially helping us to raise much needs funds – enable us to achieve so much for children in Tanzania and Ethiopia(link Tanzania and Ethiopia with the TZ and ETH pages under our work). Without them we could not make that positive difference.
Volunteering is Fun – and Very Rewarding
Here’s what one of our loyal volunteers, Malcolm Johnson, has to say about volunteering for us:
“I got involved with Children in Crossfire five years ago as I felt I needed to give a little back. I decided to challenge myself and signed up to walk part of the Camino de Santiago (130 km). At that time, I decided to give up smoking, and I haven’t smoked since!
“Since then, there has been no stopping me. I have trekked the Wicklow Way, Vietnam and the Camino again. In fact, Easter 2020 will be my third Camino, this time doing the Portuguese route.
“I actually find the fundraising fun, and very humbling. I have arranged street collections and met some amazing people in the process. I did a car boot sale and made wooden Christmas logs which were sold to local shops, at a craft fair, to friends & work colleagues.
“The treks are a great way to see different parts of the world and different cultures – while at the same time helping vulnerable children in Tanzania and Ethiopia. If it’s something you’ve thought about getting involved in I recommend strongly that you go for it.”
