Do you want to do some flexible volunteerwork in Rotterdam as an international? That is possible via NL Cares! The volunteer activities on their online calender are short, give you and the other a lot of joy and they do no ask for long-term commitment! You can teach refugees to ride a bike, hand out food at the food bank, or make pancakes for the elderly. There’s always something good.

During this workshop NLCares will tell you more about the current activities they offer and which projects are accessible for internationals.
