VOLUNTEER FOR THE HEART AND STROKE FOUNDATION, SOUTH AFRICA
LOCATION: GEORGE, WESTERN CAPE
Our volunteers make an enormous difference in the lives of ordinary South Africans across the country through their generous contributions of time, skill, physical resource and commitment to our cause. At the Foundation, we view volunteers as a vital component in our vision of reducing heart disease and stroke- related deaths in South Africa. The Heart and Stroke Foundation, South Africa (HSFSA) is a non-profit organisation (NPO) with limited resources and actively seeks to recruit volunteers to support the foundation on many of our awareness initiatives.
Many see it as an opportunity to give something back to society in a meaningful way and for others, it is a way to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. At some educational institutions, it is an application requirement for a prospective student to volunteer at an NPO. The Volunteer Programme also gives an opportunity to volunteers from abroad, to experience South Africa’s diverse culture while making a positive difference.
Who should volunteer?
We encourage individuals, families, companies and students to volunteer. We also seek volunteers that can play a role in helping us to create awareness around heart diseases and strokes and prevention on the various social media platforms.
What you can expect from Volunteering
