The heart of volunteerism

Politics & Society

How can hope arise through pain and suffering? A fighter herself against cancer, Persefoni Mitta speaks about the value of volunteering, the joy of unconditional offering and the strength one gains when helping the ones who need it. Even if things do not eventually turn up the way you wished and tried for, the act of offering is itself rewarding and fulfilling while at the same time it engages other people to join volunteering and help ease the pain. For Persefoni Pitta volunteering is about giving and receiving love, the very essence of life.
