Comhlámh would like to invite you to an upcoming event as part of our involvement in the EU Aid Volunteer Initiative which showcases the partnership of upholding good practice with organisations in Europe and the global south to engage volunteers in humanitarian response, disaster risk reduction and rehabilitation efforts.
Event: Volunteering in Humanitarian Aid: stories and reflections from volunteers
When: June 8th, 6pm
Where: Studio 6, Temple bar
About the event:
- There will be a photographic exhibition highlighting local volunteer’s engagement in humanitarian projects from Ecuador, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Bangladesh and the Philippines as well as volunteers from Europe involved in promoting best practices in humanitarian aid.
- There will be a brief panel discussion of volunteers who have taken part in volunteering or on their journey to work in a humanitarian context and an opportunity to hear their personal reflections.
The evening will be a chance for discussion, reflections and for potential volunteers to hear about how they can get involved in the EU Aid Volunteer program and to reiterate the importance of volunteering for global solidarity.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
