For the last couple of months, I've been volunteering with people with disability and throughout this time, this provided me several opportunities to gain more experience in this field. I came to understand and appreciate better the needs and difficulties that people with disability encounter in their daily life. The delight that one feels when volunteering, instils a yet greater motivation in the heart of the volunteer to keep on making a difference in the life of other people. I can say that voluntary work is a life changing experience because it aided me to solidify further my values and beliefs about life. For all these reasons, I believe that voluntary work is not only beneficial to the ones who receive it, but also to the altruistic people who willingly provide a helping hand.
