EU Aid Volunteering
THE 6 PARTNERS – BELGIUM, GREECE, THE NETHERLANDS, SPAIN, SWEDEN AND UNITED KINGDOM
The EU Aid Volunteers project is now launched!
This work is being led by our sister organisation, Médicos del Mundo, Spain in partnership with Médecins du Monde, Belgium and ourselves at DOTW UK as sending organisations.
We work closely with our non-EU partners from 10 countries: Bolivia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Mali, Mozambique, Palestine, Sahara, and Senegal.
WHAT DOES THE EU AID VOLUNTEERS INITIATIVE OFFER?
1 Opportunities for European citizens to become EU Aid Volunteers in humanitarian projects worldwide, showing solidarity with those who most need it.
2 Professional support by trained and well-prepared volunteers to communities affected by disaster.
3 Capacity building for local staff and volunteers of organisations in countries hit by disasters.
4 Technical assistance for organisations based in Europe to strengthen their capacity to participate in the EU Aid Volunteers initiative. Individuals can apply to be deployed to humanitarian projects worldwide.
You can find all open vacancies descriptions for our Deployment project on the EUAV platform.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BE A VOLUNTEER?
To be an EU Aid Volunteer you need to be an EU citizen or long-term resident of an EU Member State and you must be a minimum age of 18. Online volunteering will be open to volunteers of any nationality.
EU Aid Volunteers deployed to humanitarian aid projects will receive training, with accommodation and travel costs covered, and may have the possibility to undertake additional training at the HQ of one of our sending organisations (MdM Spain, MdM Belgium or DOTW UK) before deployment.
