Temporary Suspension of KCH Volunteering Programme

16th March 2020

In light of recent developments and announcements relating to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the KCH Volunteering Programme has been suspended with immediate effect.  The care and well-being of our children is at the heart of everything we do at KCH, and we hope that you understand the need for us to take this precautionary step.  KCH staff continue to take every available step to protect our children at this time of uncertainty.  Please monitor this page for further information over the coming weeks.  Our best wishes go out to all our volunteers and supporters at this difficult time.

"To say that the support we get from volunteers is valuable, is an understatement!  Our kids and staff benefit so much from the time, love and care given by our volunteers.  Having started as a volunteer myself, I can honestly say that working at KCH was a life changing experience.  Look where my journey has taken me…and it all started with volunteering at KCH. 

Living and working in Africa can sometimes be challenging (and always hard work), but the joy of working with such wonderful staff and children far outweigh any of the difficulties.

I would encourage anyone who is willing to give a few months of their time to help orphaned children, to contact us about our volunteering opportunities.  There are still slots available, so if you are interested, please contact me or any of the Balcraig team here in Perth."
