Many elderly people are not able to get outside of their houses due to a lack of helping hands. Sometimes they are sitting inside for many days in a row. They would love to feel the wind in their hair and the sun on their face. Would you like to give them a wonderful afternoon? As a volunteer you will pick up the elderly at their residence, push the wheelchair and have a nice chat while walking. You are more than welcome to join this activity.
