Review for Romanian Children's Relief, Reston, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered with this organization three different times, and I have thoroughly enjoyed each experience. I traveled to Romania twice (2009 and 2010) and worked in the MA office. I saw two very different parts of the country. Participating on these trips is the only time I have left the US. Given the opportunity, Romania would be the first place I visit again (with RCR). The work is incredible. There are no words to adequately describe my experience.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Allow more volunteers to travel to Romania. However, I do understand the concern that the kids may become attached and too many groups may be overwhelming.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

new friends, new skills, new outlook, new/ reinvigorated appreciation
