Volunteering At the IWC we are always looking for Volunteers. Do you have some spare time to share with one of the organizations we support?
The type of support varies depending on your interests and time availability. No help is too small if you can help a person in need. The greatest happiness is seeing the smile erupt from their faces.
If you are interested in dedicating some of your time to any of these organizations, please feel free to contact our Charities Director Marta Granyó Prim at email@example.com
