Voluntary work

Post by Judith C » Mon, 06 Jul 2009 1:58 am

Hello,

I will be living in Singapore from November 1, 2009.

I want to be active as a voluntary worker. I prefer to work with children with or without a handicap.

I would like to get information about possibilities for voluntary work and how to contact the right people.

Your help is appreciated very much!

Best regards, Judith

It's quite easy, actually.

Mrs 'Cluse and I were quite involved with NUH's Deaf Children's program . . . as well as helping out with functions for the cancer ward.

SMS' suggestion is a good one to follow up with or just contact the hospitals or organisations directly, they are more than happy to have people help in whichever way.

Good on you for wanting to do this.

The opportunties are endless... the peoples association website lists a number of voluntary organisations in Singapore. www.thekindexchange.com has a listing of voluntary organisations by category (or it might be www.primetime.org.sg). I'm sure the local deaf school (I don't know where it is) would love to have an extra pair of hands...
Happy looking.
