The refugee and migrant crisis in Europe has become critical. To help the thousands of refugees and migrants in need, Projects Abroad has partnered with two local NGOs (including the Red Cross) in Italy to launch a new Refugee Project. With the crisis worsening by the day and the local economy suffering, we are urging volunteers to help make a difference.

Our Nutrition interns have begun making an impact in underprivileged townships in Cape Town, South Africa! The project, which focuses on promoting healthy living in areas where poverty and disease are widespread, has been a valuable experience so far for all involved. Ruby, a Public Health graduate from the US, said: “I'm learning so much about the people, the culture, the science of nutrition, and about myself.”  Read more about the program here: http://ow.ly/4mYu1u #volunteering #nutrition #healthcare #southafrica
