    Hello
    Recently i start of becoming a part of the international Red Cross organization
    and i would like to ask, to those of you guys who actually know:
    As a member can i find a self care in that organization?
    Im talking about if it possible for them to provide me with a place to
    sleep and 3 meals a day? While i will be a voluntary worker?

    Im asking it because my fucken dad is a complete asshole to me
    because he don't really understand what it means to help others
    So i really want to leave the house as soon as possible
    I cant stand this selfish asshole for any longer
    I AM SO MAD AT HIM! :mad:

    a volunteer generally doesn't ask for anything in return <Mod Edit>

    if you want to play on peoples sympathies atleast sound genuine

    Hi!

    This is as far as I know, and I may be completely wrong, but the answer is generally: no.

    As far as I understand it, the Red Cross/Red Crescent is a "as needed" organization, and if there is no need for members to be in an area, they'll expect you to return to your normal day to day lives, unless you're in a position overseas.

    If you truly want a place to say, and you have a college education, check out the Peace Corps.
