Volunteering with IVHQ is a fantastic experience. The people at the incredible NGO I worked are truly remarkable and the tasks you get to do are diverse and humbling. I extremely encourage you if you are even slightly tempted to do this - go for it! Working within a refugee center and listening to some of the most beautiful and raw stories was truly heartwarming. For all the life lessons they have taught me - I am forever grateful and blessed.
