Volunteer – Rod
Volunteers by their nature are selfless people. However, I must admit to a bit of selfishness in my volunteering. There comes a warm glow within with some of my experiences since becoming involved with Remap. I never cease to be aware of that feeling when I see how some disabled people not only cope with life but also are so buoyant and joyful. This is driven home even more by the pleasure they show when we complete a job and improve their standard of living or lifestyle. I also get a great deal from listening to other engineers talk about solutions to problematic cases – matter of fact discussions that result in life enhancing results to others. In reality volunteering isn’t just about giving, it is also about receiving; it’s a wonderful two-way experience.
