I took part in an orphanage program in Cambodia through IVHQ and it was truly the most rewarding, inspiring and incredible experience of my life.
IVHQ were in constant contact from the minute I signed up, and I never once felt unsure or uneasy about the process or the program, and the IVHQ staff always answered any questions I had within 24 hours.
Whilst on the program, IVHQ was in touch with me to ensure I was having a good time, and to answer any queries I had.
The program itself was amazing. I volunteered with 3 other girls with whom I have formed life-long friendships. We were placed in a beautiful village called Krang Lovea, in rural Cambodia, and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful, welcoming orphanage to work in.
The children were incredible and we all came away from the trip feeling as if we had really made a difference in the children's lives, and that we had formed a second family with them.
3 Months on I am still in contact with the children in Krang Lovea, and I love catching up on their news and hearing how they all are.
I couldn't recommend IVHQ highly enough. From the moment I registered for the program to the minute I stepped on the plane home, I felt fully taken care of and safe. I am already planning my next volunteering adventure with IVHQ!!
