EU Aid Volunteers: Chiara’s story

EU Aid Volunteers brings together volunteers and organisations from different countries, providing practical support to humanitarian aid projects.

Millions are affected by natural hazards and man-made disasters each year. In the aftermath of a disaster, an affected population needs clean water, shelter, food assistance, and protection. Humanitarian organisations are the first to respond to these basic needs.

EU Aid Volunteers give European citizens a chance to show their solidarity by collaborating in humanitarian projects worldwide. Here is Chiara’s story.
