HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT PATHFINDERS?

Lisa who works for PathFinders as a nurse, invited everybody at the Swedish Women Association to come and volunteer.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO VOLUNTEER AT PATHFINDERS?

From the start it was because I wanted to help the women who had contacted PathFinders. Now I also do it because it’s wonderful to be around the little kids on donation days.

WHAT DID YOUR DAY VOLUNTEERING AT PATHFINDERS ENTAIL?

I volunteer once a month, Thursday and Friday. On Thursday we sort all the donations and on Fridays lots of mums come and collect what they need. I assist the mothers with their babies while they pick out what clothes and things they most need. I also help keeping a record of who’s there and what they take.

WHAT DID YOU LEARN ABOUT THE ORGANISATION/NATURE OF THE WORK?

PathFinders helps women and babies in need. Healthcare, education and donations are a few of the services provided.

DO YOU HAVE A MASSAGE FOR OTHER PEOPLE LOOKING TO VOLUNTEER?

Spend a day at PathFinders, meet the devoted staff and help lend a hand. Even small efforts make a difference.
