Mijas, 29th May 2019.-
CLC World Resorts & Hotels offers a Holiday Extension Programme to team members who use their holiday entitlement to helping others through charitable activities abroad.
One team member, Mª Dolores Pareja, is the first employee to take up the offer and has recently returned from a trip to Sierra Leone.
Mª Dolores has volunteered for almost ten years with ACISS, Sierra de las Nieves International Solidarity Cooperation Association, and the trip to Sierra Leone was part of their Third Health Campaign.
Holding a deep conviction that ‘every little act helps’, Mª Dolores worked with doctors, nurses and support staff from Christ the King Children’s Hospital (Waterloo) for 8 days.
“They were exhausting days, in which sometimes we had to fight against many difficulties, although with great results; we give life to those who need it most,” she stressed.
122 patients underwent essential operations thanks to the enormous effort of all the hospital staff. “There are not many resources, although there are many wonderful people, testimonies of incredibly difficult lives, but always with the hope of helping people getting the operations they need, despite the lack of resources,” Mª Dolores explained.
An enriching life experience that gives new perspective to everyday life.
