Volunteers, Unite for Sight


If you're looking for exciting volunteer opportunities, Unite For Sight has volunteer opportunities at an orphanage in Sangklaburi, Thailand, and in Tsunami refugee camps in Sri Lanka. Other opportunities are also available in African, Asian, and Latin American countries.



The opportunities in Thailand and Sri Lanka have flexible dates for 2 weeks or more, and we hope that many of you may be interested in participating.
