Description of the EVS volunteer’s tasks:
Volunteers that work in hospices throughout the world are an essential part of the hospice philosophy of care which recognizes that dying is not just a medical event but a personal one as well.

We also intend to offer the volunteer the chance to discover Moldova and Moldovan customs and values, and share with them a sense of international understanding of real and local problems.

The activities in our Foundation are concentrated around Health and Disability areas, and we expect the main projects and activities to be initiated or adopted by our EVS volunteers: – Activities for fundraising, event management and PR in support of our direct services (an EVS volunteer with clerical skills can serve our hospice by helping in the office with simple administrative duties; fundraising responsibilities can range from preparing mail…
