We are currently not recruiting for volunteers

Due to the outbreak of Covid-19 across Europe and the greater globe and the continuous changes regarding border control, we have taken the decision not to recruit any volunteers until further notice. This is a difficult decision that we have had to make but considering the volatile situation at hand, we need to place safety, health and security as our highest priority.

Thank you for your understanding and if you would like to still contribute to our mission, please visit the other options on our 'How Can I Help?' page.
