What volunteers say: 

Grecia:
What I can say about my year as volunteer is that it was an amazing experience although at first I was a little indecisive and scare of taking this big challenge. I would never regret and I will even do it again because living in another culture and meeting new friends from different countries whilst helping homeless people made grow in different aspects of my life, all in all I am so grateful and glad for have taken this opportunity that changed my way of thinking and perspective to keep improving and helping others.

Hector:
Hi, my name is Hector and I am from Venezuela. My experience as a volunteer in The UK was extraordinary because I really enjoy helping disable people who taught me a lot of things with their generosity and receptivity to other cultures. Also the disabled people as well as the volunteers made me able to see other points of view about life which is absolutely necessary nowadays. After my experience I encourage everyone on the world to try this experience, to open your mind and your heart to this good cause which will make you mature and develop new skills which I am sure you have never thought you had.

Lucia:
I am very grateful to M C International Links for the exceptional experiece I had during my time as volunteer. In this time I developed skills that are very useful in my current field of work. Additionally, M C International Links opened my eyes to new opportunities and gave me the vision to continue growing personally and professionally.
Furthermore my experience as a volunteer contributed to fulfil one of my most important goals in life, to help people to reach their maximun potential as a whole.
