I first started volunteer in the Salt & Light program because I felt that this COVID-19 situation has taken a huge toll on the community. I want to come together with the rest of the people that can help and reassure the people around us that there is hope, that there really is a life at the end of this hard time.
Teaching English to mates in my community with Hands of Hope is a blessing in disguise. It introduced me to a team of committed volunteers who want to lift others up by developing understanding through language. It introduced me to a group of people who are resilient and determined to break down the barriers of language.
Volunteering through Hands of Hope has given me countless experiences with many new and friendly members of the community, and has also helped guide me in realising my predilection for volunteering and philanthropic/non-profit works. The biggest lesson I’ve learnt through volunteering with Hands of Hope is that as servants of Christ, we are called to help and serve ALL of God’s children, regardless of if they are believers or not.
