CARamos Tanzania Orphanage volunteer
Organized by: Carmen Ramos
EVENT DATE Aug 13, 2015
Hello family & friends
I have the opportunity to serve unfortunate children this summer in Tanzania & would greatly appreciate the help.
The organization that I will be volunteering with is International volunteer HQ. Due to the high rate of HIV/AIDS & other illnesses prevalent in Sub-Saharan African countries, there is a large number of children left orphaned in Tanzania. In addition there are many children who have been abandoned by their parents, as they are unable to provide for them. I have volunteered at one of the orphanages to teach and care for them, while also working in a special needs school in Arshua with around 25 students aged between 3 and 25 years old with a range of mental and physical disabilities. Volunteers are also required to help with the general running of the orphanage and daily chores. Tasks include cooking and cleaning, farm work, caring for the children and babies, and assisting with feeding programs. I would really appreciate anyone who is willing to help me fundraise for my involvement with IVHQ. Your contribution will go directly to the cost for me to volunteer in Tanzania.
Looking forward to giving and making a difference.
with love, Carmen.
