FAQ question: 

In your press releases it is mentioned that your activities are ‘volunteer-based’? Why do so many people want to join in? What do they get out of it?

FAQ answer: 

The vast majority of the people who contribute to our activities are indeed volunteers. In each country, there are a few administrative staff who are employed, sometimes as few as 10 for a country with quite a sizeable organisation.

Why do people want to volunteer? The satisfaction from doing something for others is very great. It’s a natural impulse to help others - something which young children exhibit, but sometimes stress, fear and other negative emotions block.

Part of being more relaxed and content is a sense of belongingness to others, and from this sense of belongingness service activity becomes spontaneous!
