Volunteering 1


Volunteering comes in different forms, and allows you to choose whether to share your time, energy or expertise with the targeted groups that need help. Becoming a volunteer with MAKNA gives you a firsthand opportunity to serve and comfort those who are less fortunate, in our case, cancer patients and their families. It also lodges you right among those who need information about cancer, where you help make understanding the disease better. The simple act of giving creates and fosters the love for others while the giving of time is a good feeling you will experience in abundance. The willingness to share your time and energy will bring you contentment and self-satisfaction.

It’s too difficult to simply sum up the experience I have had with MAKNA. It is a journey you must experience yourself to really see the magnitude of work that they do. As a volunteer at MAKNA you will participate in and learn many different things and I have no doubt the experience will redefine your outlook on life, as it did mine. I would like to sincerely thank MAKNA for giving me the opportunity to be part of their mission. Thank you for sharing your time and stories with me and most of all, for being such an inspiration.

MAKNA gave me an idea about what it means to care for others. It impressed me, how many activities were organised to create and increase cancer awareness in public and the provision of psychological and financial support to patients. It was wonderful to see for myself the passion and motivation of MAKNA staff and volunteers who never give up and never afraid of trying new ways to do things.

My time with MAKNA was something that I will always cherish. The staff despite executing labour-intensive tasks daily, were always willing to help whenever I needed assistance. As I was involved in charity drives, I learnt very crucial people skills that MAKNA employs in organising their campaigns. “Isn’t everyone part of everyone else?”
