1. What is your background (profession/ workplace/ training)?
Doctor/ Mercy Hospital for Women/ aspiring Obstetrician & Gynaecologist!
2. What inspired you to become a Water Well volunteer?
Hearing inspiring stories from fellow volunteers; and wanting to make a difference especially at this time of great need with the ongoing refugee crisis.
3. Please share one of your favourite Water Well sessions or moments.
I volunteered in a Diabetes session. I thought it was very fulfilling to walk out from the session knowing that the group of people you spoke to have: learnt about an important health issue and taken home some healthy lifestyle tips including checking in regularly with their GP. They may not have been aware of such things without a session like this.
4. What tips do you have for new volunteers?
Attend the sessions with an open heart and open mind.
The people you speak to are genuinely interested in the things you have to say.
