Everyone was so lovely and welcoming. Each and every member made my feel settled and secure. They were available to contact 24/7 if we ever required it. I always felt safe and that I could turn to any of the local team for anything. Their help was greatly appreciated. This has been an amazing experience. I have loved every minute of my time here. I have meet incredible people from the local area and volunteers. I loved my placement and learned so much as well as exchanged some of my own knowledge about the chosen project. I have an open mind and appreciate everything I have after volunteering. The accommodation was perfect. It was clean and secure. The mosquito net was provided which worked really well. Have nothing bad to say. The meals were lovely. There was plenty of options for everyone and different meals each day. They catered for every dietary requirement. I really liked tasting the local food.
I learned so much from this experience. I stepped completely out of my comfort zone. I am so glad I did this. I learned so much about the culture of where I am volunteering and so much more about myself. I am very grateful for this experience and appreciate everything I have. I will definitely volunteer with IVHQ again, can’t fault a thing! I would 100% recommend this to everyone. It’s a life changing experience and everyone that you meet has a similar mindset so you won’t be alone. Meeting people from all around the world while helping a community is an amazing opportunity. Loved every minute of it!
