Return of the Volunteer

Will Teoh started volunteering at Aidha eight or nine years ago.  “I’d just graduated and decided that I should make good use of my time during the weekend with meaningful activities. Volunteering at Aidha was one of them”. Will shares one of his earliest Aidha memories, “At Aidha’s first school-house, students actually cooked in the house and they would simulate selling the food. I got the chance to taste some really good, local food from their home countries!” he laughs.
