Volunteering in Orphanages in Europe

Over the years, our volunteers have done excellent work in orphanages around the world. They have been an extra pair of hands, ears, and eyes for caregivers. Our focus has since shifted and we're now dedicated to placing our volunteers in care centers and rehabilitation centers. Our aim is to also try and reunite children with their families if this is a possibility.
