People bring about change
Each year, Mona Relief transforms lives and creates opportunities in Yemen. All of this is accomplished by volunteers: national volunteers, who work within their own communities; youth volunteers, who come together across cultures to work on community projects; international volunteers, who work in their area of professional expertise, and who help us raise funds. Our volunteers are the heart and soul of our operations, we are only as good as our volunteers, and our volunteers exemplify compassion, empathy,selflessness and humanity.
The statistics don’t tell the whole story, but volunteering is a two way street. It changes the lives of both the volunteer and the community they help transform. Volunteering can be enormously rewarding on many different levels; from the positive feeling when you have made a difference to someone's life, to the development of a CV that stands you out from the crowd.
But don’t take our word for it. Here are some of the personal career benefits volunteers have told us they have experienced.
"I've gained new skills including the joy of helping people, it makes me feel good in my heart."
"Volunteering has given me a completely different breadth of experience and will help me change my career to help more people."
"When I saw a mother crying because she didnt have anything to feed her children, I was the one who gave her the food. I was happier than her."
"Although I couldn't physically be in Yemen, I helped Mona by raising money online and through family and friends. When they emailed me the pictures of how the money I raised was helping people, I couldn't believe it. I am doing it again: the feeling is amazing."
