You can become an EU Aid Volunteer!

Here we want to show you the last work of of production company Up & Coming. We recorded two videos in Brussels last month we would like to share with you all. Both show a proyect set up to help those hit by disasters all over the world: the EU Aid Volunteers, the new global humanitarian initiative of the European Commission.

This programme will give the opportunity for 4,000 people to volunteer worldwide in humanitarian operations till 2020. And the European Community Humanitarian Office (ECHO) is currently funding pilot projects!

You can see the short video of the programme here:

And you can view here the oppinions of some of the EU volunteers. We had the chance to interview them when they came back from their deployments, since the European Commission invited them to come to Brussels last month to share their experiences:
