Have you got an overdue new year’s resolution to give some time to a good cause? Are you passionate about maternal health and angered by the high number of maternal deaths that still occur across the world? Can you spare some time to volunteer for Ammalife? If so, we’re ready to hear from you!
Ammalife is lucky to be supported by a myriad of wonderful volunteers of all ages. From our student volunteers, to our retired cake-sellers, we’re thankful to the many dedicated individuals who give their time to Ammalife to help us in our mission to save more mothers’ lives. Giving time to Ammalife can also be a great way for our volunteers to meet new people and to learn new skills, and we hope that you’ll get as much out of volunteering with us as we benefit from your contributions.
‘I have been volunteering with Ammalife for over a year and have really enjoyed my experience. Not only have I been able to work with some amazing people but I have learned about the outstanding opportunities and hope that Ammalife gives to mothers who need the most support.’ Safaa, Duke of Edinburgh Volunteer
In the past, Hannah worked for us as a Trusts and Foundations Volunteer alongside her work at the University of Birmingham. ‘Volunteering for Ammalife contrasted really well with my day job where I was doing large scale fundraising for university buildings,’ she says. ‘As a mum, the Ammalife cause particularly resonated with me. To be able to do something that directly benefits people in need meant a lot to me. Volunteering for Ammalife was really rewarding and gave me a truly personal sense of doing something genuinely helpful for others.’
We’re fortunate to have a dynamic group of youth volunteers who regularly give up their time for Ammalife as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award, helping to thank our donors and assisting us in organising fundraising events. Arran, who recently raised over £100 for Ammalife in a sweet sale that he’d organised, noted that ‘my experience of working with Ammalife has been great… I chose this charity as it is completely unique and not many organisations offer this type of aid in helping pregnant women during and after child birth… it’s been fantastic!’ Our D of E volunteers also made a fantastic contribution to our Festive Fundraising Event in December 2018, which raised over £2,000; ‘it was great to see our ideas come to life,’ said D of E volunteer Abdea, ‘it’s always good to know that you are making a difference somewhere in a wonderfully positive way.’
‘Helping with admin work and organising events for this charity has allowed me to appreciate the large contribution that volunteers make to create outstanding results. To be able to volunteer with Ammalife has been excellent and I am so grateful to be a part of it.’ Anna, Duke of Edinburgh Volunteer
