Q: How do get a volunteer position at a Chinese orphanage?

I've met a few people who have volunteered at orphanages but never see volunteer opportunities like this advertised anywhere. What's the best way of finding and getting such positions?

Sometimes students from this college go to volunteer for a few hours. When I heard about it, I went with them. They played some games with the children, and some of the children put on a dance performance. We brought lots of snacks for them, and if they won a game they got a prize. All of them had some kind of disability, which is why the parents abandoned them, I would think. One of the cutest little girls was there, all that was wrong with her was that she couldn't move her legs. I know that doesn't sound like a big deal, but because she lives in China, there are very few ramps and many buildings don't have elevators. It's unfortunate that these children don't have a home, but at least we could give them a few hours of fun.

Simply go to an orphanage see if they have positions available and they put you to work. Of course there will be a background check and then you have to qualify first. Meaning good record, no troubles with the law, probably have to take a volunteer course and then you will be set!heart

You have not met anyone who has volunteered at any orphanage.

Oh no....how badly do you want to break your heart? The things you'll see in a Chinese orphanage will not please you. I think you're braver than me for wanting to do that.

A:My sister still sends me letters from Scotland. Get about 2 a year. I don't write back. She has Facebook but no email. And she refuses to use wechat for some reason. She complains I don't post enough photos of the kid on Facebook. I tell her FB is banned, get wechat then she can see new photos multiple times a day. She won't do it. And she can comment instantly or chat.

In fact, last time I posted photos on FB I got an angry message from her demanding to know why I was in the UK and did not go to see her. Even though the photos were of China.

I sent a message back explaining how VPNs work, and that I was not on the UK at all.

To be honest, using the post is a pain in the arse. Using Facebook is a close second. While Wechat is easy, no matter where you are on the world.

My sister could have instant access via wechat. But she refuses to use it. She just has no concept of what it is like in China to access Facebook or use the Chinese post office.

Snail mail is fine if you live in a country with post boxes on street corners. But posting the "Chinese way" is just too much trouble. -- ScotsAlan
