Our Volunteer Teams over the years.

2014 Marcel Campbell RAN, Ramya Moang Cambodian RN, Richard Burrowes RAN, Carmel Horsburgh Midwife/RN

Without the support and friendship that our clinical and non clinical volunteers have given during the years Supporting Silk Sisters would not have achieved what we have. Although we are only a small NGO we remain focused on what we know we do best. Working at the grass roots level with individuals and families, midwifery and nursing education and our free primary health care clinics.

Volunteering is challenging and takes all of us out of comfort zone. My personal experience is that we get back what we are prepared to invest. Working in another culture challenges us as people to get out of our comfort zone, our beliefs and, values. When we are open to new experiences volunteering can be humbling, joyful, fun and an awesome learning experience.

Volunteering is not all work there is lots of time for fun and exploring. We  welcome any inquiries from people interested in volunteering who are clinical, non clinical and qualified tradesmen.
