Humanitarian organizations need more well-trained people to carry out practical action helping communities affected by a disaster. The EU Aid Volunteers initiative enables European citizens to contribute to humanitarian assistance in countries where help is needed. The majority of existing volunteering schemes in Europe have a domestic focus and few provide opportunities to support humanitarian aid. The EU Aid Volunteers initiative brings volunteers and organizations from different countries to work together in joint projects in areas such as resilience-building, early warning, and disaster risk management, as a practical expression of solidarity with communities vulnerable to humanitarian crises.
In spring 2017 Czech NGO Diaconia ECCB is deploying 8 volunteers to Ethiopia, Nepal, Uganda and Cambodia. Apply before 8th of May 2017 and become one of EU Aid Volunteers. You can gain a lot!
