Please note this trip is now FULL and closed to applications. If you are interested in volunteering on one of our distribution teams in 2019 please contact us here.
Please volunteer and join us on our shoebox distribution team to Eastern Europe. The smiles on the children’s faces truly will never leave you! Each day will involve distributing shoeboxes across a variety of venues from community centres, schools, churches, door-to-door in villages, respite centres and possibly orphanages/state care institutions. In many of the venues the children will sing and perform for you as honoured guests before the distribution.
Communities will be varied from some incredibly destitute Roma communities to impoverished rural communities. Sometimes the poverty will not be obvious and in some cases what you’ll encounter may be emotional/traumatic. Please be aware that these teams can be emotionally difficult but your trip leader will brief you most evenings and support is available after your return to the UK if needed.
These teams are physically demanding (you may be required to lift heavy cartons – containing around 9-12 shoeboxes per carton) and you may be required to walk distances in uneven and muddy or icy terrain. Some teams involve quite a bit of travel with long road journeys, and the days can be long with the possibility of different hotels across the week. Please be aware that mealtimes may be rather varied depending on the schedule for each day!
The full cost of this team is £750 all-inclusive** We will support you with a payment schedule and can help with fundraising advice.
For more information and to talk through any expectations/needs thoroughly please contact our trip leader for this team, Ziz York ‚ firstname.lastname@example.org.Join This¬†TeamMake A Payment
