Meet The Volunteers: Milena Luteijn. Milena is from the Netherlands and her placement was at the women’s shelter as well as the orphanage. “I graduated with a degree as a social worker so this was great experience for me, especially abroad,” she said.
Milena’s favorite experience was living at her Filipino homestay. “I loved my time there. I’m really gratefull that I could experience the Filipino culture this way and learn about the culture.” Milena said the volunteer program showed her how important is to get involved, instead of just sponsoring financially. “Being in contact, helping hand-in-hand, just brings the good feeling to another level. I’m eager to take action in other volunteering programs as well as sponsoring a child,” she said. “I totally recommend this experience, without hesitating one single second.” Thank you for your time, Milena! Your three months of being here was a joy to us, as well! Mabuhay and good luck with your future endeavors!
