The volunteers are a valuable and active part of our NPH family. They work directly with our children in all areas. They tutor in school, they care for them in their homes, they treat them in the clinic and fill many and all roles in between. Volunteers have been working with NPH since our first day and Fr. Wasson relied on volunteers from the beginning, just as much as we do now.
Each January and July we welcome new volunteers in our homes. This July, 26 new volunteers arrived to our homes in Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and the Dominican Republic. Avriel Burlot, the International Volunteer Coordinator, had the opportunity to visit the four homes for the volunteer orientations and meet the new volunteers. She said, “I love when new volunteers start working with us! They bring an energy, new ideas, new spirit and they love the kids so much! The more people that love and care for our kids the better.”
Currently we have 68 volunteers, representing 17 countries, in all of our homes. They work hard, play soccer, serve food, put our kids to bed and love them with all of their heart. We cannot thank them enough for their dedication and love.
