Volunteering after Natural Disasters – Wednesday 22nd February 2017

Guy Mandziuk was born in York, grew up in Dunnington, attended Dunnington Primary School, was a member of Dunnington scouts group and played for the mighty Dunnington F.C.   Guy is now on a graduate scheme with Unilever, but prior to joining the company spent two months volunteering in 35 degrees heat and 90% humidity with a dedicated group of volunteers from around the world to support building work after the 2013 typhoon Yolanda that devastated parts of South East Asia, and the Philippines in particular. During the summer of 2016 Guy flew to Nepal to join All Hands Volunteers, an American NGO, to help rebuilding after the 2015 major Nepal earthquake.

Guy will give us an illustrated presentation on his inspiring experiences in the face of these natural disasters, at 8.00pm in the Dunnington  Reading Room.

Admission is free to members, non-members £1.50, and refreshments 50p.
