Gaby: “It helps my faith and heart to know that there’s organizations like World Help”

Why should you volunteer with World Help?

There are plenty of incredible nonprofit organizations in the greater Lynchburg area — many of whom also need amazing volunteers like YOU. So why should you choose to give your valuable time to World Help?

We could give you an answer, but it might be a little biased … so that’s why we asked Gaby!

She and her family have been consistently volunteering with World Help this summer. Recently, we asked her what keeps them coming back.

Here’s what she had to say:

Q: Why do you volunteer at World Help? 

We love our volunteers
Our volunteers help prepare emergency aid to ship around the world

A: I love how Jesus left us beautiful examples on how to love and care for our neighbor. In one of His parables, he shares the following Scripture, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

When I read the whole parable in Matthew 25, it reminds me that my brothers and sisters are not only people at church or my neighborhood, but also those that are in need all over the States but also all over the world.

Even though what we do may seem small, to our brothers and sisters around the world, it is life-changing. Then my small portion of volunteering is all worth it.

Q: What is your favorite part about volunteering? 

Send help and hope worldwide
People of all ages are welcome to come volunteer with World Help

A: We’ve been taking our two young girls to volunteer. To serve as a family along with other friends has been fun and meaningful!

Q: How has volunteering impacted your own life and your faith? 

We appreciate all our volunteers
Thank you to every one of our incredible volunteers who are helping save lives

A: We are inspired by the work that World Help has been doing around the world.

As an immigrant myself, it helps my faith and heart to know that there’s organizations like World Help with such incredible hearts that are willing and making every sacrifice to love and serve people like me!

So, there you have it!

We are so grateful for Gaby, her family, and all of our other volunteers. Every time you come volunteer at our Humanitarian Aid Distribution Center, lives all over the world are transformed! Thank you to Gaby and our other volunteers for giving your time to generously to help change the world.

And if you’re interested in a meaningful volunteer experience to help those who need it most, we’re always looking for more helping hands!

Thank you in advance for helping us change the world … one life at a time.
