I have heard about the Water Well Project from a friend. I truly believe that educating communities about their health is the first step to empowering them and improving health outcomes. Being an immigrant my self, I know how challenging the transition can be between different environments and cultures; it can affect physical and mental health drastically. Hence, I felt that volunteering with the water well project is a great way to help refugees and asylum seekers through my experience.
3. Please share one of your favourite Water Well sessions or moments.
My first session was so much fun; it was about Mental Health. All the group was sharing stories and finding ways of meditation that suit them. It was an eye-opener for women to look after themselves not only after their families.
4. What tips do you have for new volunteers?
The sessions are a great opportunity to be introduced to new cultures, just start the session with an open heart and have fun!
