ESC Volunteer from Netherlands
Studies: Interdisciplinary Social Studies
Experience in the field of volunteering: “I volunteered before for a student association that aimed specifically at increasing volunteering and social awareness among students in the city of Utrecht, the Netherlands.”
Volunteering at the Charity Centre for Refugees NGO: “The refugee crisis is one of the biggest challenges of our time and if not handled sensibly one that will continue to cause tremendous human suffering. That even Moldova, a country with a fair chair of its own problems, is a destination for refugees just goes to show that by far most refugees are simply in search of a safe haven where they can have a normal life. Being able to get to know their stories and contribute to a better life for them here has been, and is, a very rewarding and insightful experience.
CCR is one of the very few organizations in Moldova that works with refugees and as such plays an invaluable role in helping refugees rebuilding their life here.”
