Jersey Overseas Aid (JOA) has announced their biggest ever volunteering project.

There are 50 opportunities to volunteer in Nepal, Lebanon and Kenya next year.

Those who travel to Asia, East Africa and the Middle East, will be supporting a wide range of projects from building dams and community halls to helping people with disabilities.

These projects can be life-changing and are often as valuable for the volunteers as for those they are helping. No experience is necessary although compassion, understanding and a desire to get stuck in is certainly required.

– Deputy Carolyn Labey, Minister for International Development

JOA will be holding an open meeting in St Helier Town Hall at 6pm on Wednesday 9 October for islanders to find out more.
