17 year old Ehrin Walsh, winner of the Junior International Humanitarian Volunteer 2014 award, tells us about his volunteering experiences in this episode of the Good News Shared podcast.
Ehrin, from Whitley Bay, England, has raised over £4000 for the Mount Kilimanjaro First Aid Community programme over the last two years. He gives up six weeks of his summer holiday to visit Tanzania to teach life-saving First Aid, HIV and sexual health awareness through football and Hygiene awareness. Plus Ehrin also spends time each month volunteering at his local lunch club for older people. Ehrin is hoping to be a teacher and his experience in Tanzania has given him a real taste for it.
