Volunteer Organisations Need You!


Volunteering is time willingly given for the common good and without financial gain.

While volunteering provides substantial benefits to society, importantly it also provides significant benefits to the volunteers themselves.


Hands up if you would like to volunteer?

Contact the organisations below if you would like to volunteer in any capacity.

Australian Vietnam Resource Group (AVVRG)

The project we run in Vietnam is based out of the Long Tan district and has now been going for around 9 years.  The clinic was funded and built by Australia Vietnam Volunteer Resource Group (AVVRG) and started as just a static clinic.  It has grown considerably since then – we sent one or two teams each year initially, but now five to six teams go and work a week at a time. Contact Lesley Denny for further information.
