What is it like volunteering at O.R.H?
" I volunteered at ORH in February 2011. It was a truly rewarding
experience. The kids were great fun, and I particularly enjoyed
spening Sunday's swimming at the beach with them. The dedication and
work that both jhansi and her family put into the running of ORH is
utterly inspiring."
Glenis Armstrong, Australia.
