It is an awesome way not only for those in health care but everyone to help give give back to the international community to save millions of lives. A very influential NGO that really makes a difference!
I participated in sorting medical supplies. This organization has a good cause in providing medical supplies to those who would otherwise not have access. The event itself was well organized and straightforward. The leaders were helpful if any questions arose. I went to the event alone, but I think it would work well not only for lone volunteers but for groups of 2 or more as well.
I think the event I participated in was suitable for teens, adults, and elderly people alike. The work wasn't particularly strenuous, and if something strenuous came up, a volunteer could easily avoid the heavier work by doing other, lighter tasks.
It was rewarding to see all of the boxes and pallets of medical supplies that were to be sent to hospitals in need. The leaders also did a couple of calculations to demonstrate our impact--how many people our work would help. Overall, a good experience.
I read the informantion on their website and think it would be an awesome way for youth to participate. Many High Schools have their own food shelves and hunger often is a youth issue. Harvest the enthusiasm and energy from the youthful community members and say Thanks!
