This Tuesday, apart from our monthly prayer and after meal with our volunteers, we have been able to celebrate together international volunteer’s day, surrounded by delicious food (specially mince pies) and lovely people. With Christmas almost here, we have shared about what we will do with our families, the best way to get a tastier turkey, exchange Christmas cards, and catch up on the different projects that we are involved in with CAFOD.
However, on this special Tuesday, the idea of celebrating international volunteer’s day has also brought a reflection on what volunteering means to us. The idea to give freely your time to others, share your knowledge and wisdom and be ready to learn new skills.
We appreciate the importance of each volunteer and with their different approaches in life, from school’s coordinators to office volunteers, and backgrounds which has made a huge impact in CAFOD and all those countries that it is reaching and helping.
For this and everything, we THANK YOU for all your hard work, your time, your passion, to support CAFOD and we celebrate the importance of all your work. We hope that this can also encourage others to come and volunteer and take part of this huge family.
