Covid-19 emergency – Message to the Voluntourists community

COVID-19, volunteer community, volunteers, voluntouring, voluntourism, volunteer abroad, what to do

As you are aware, the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the world. As a travelling and hosting community, we are witnessing tremendous kindnesses. People all over the world are continuing to open their homes to touring volunteers and helping out wherever needed. Thank you! This is what makes a community so special!

However, please recognize that every community and situation is different and many governments have instructed their citizens to follow certain guidelines. It is important to remember that hosting is always optional, and especially during these times, it is imperative that you contact potential hosts in advance and respect their ability or inability to host.

To help stay informed of the ongoing situation, consider visiting the World Health Organization at https://www.who.int/

Also, as a Volunteer Community, we are currently focusing most of our communications to the Facebook page and Instagram to streamline communications in one place and we have subsequently turned off the database service temporarily to manage the large amount of information and news that we are receiving. If you don’t have Facebook, you can still visit our website to stay up-to-date.

We would like to remember that if you are a host and a volunteer you are still welcome to submit an announcement on our database by filling this preliminary form.

Let’s remember that we are all facing new challenges and need to continue to be respectful of what the world is facing at this time. We will be on the Facebook PAGE with you. Stay safe.
