Voluntary work in Switzerland or somewhere closer in Europe

Hello Guys,

I have got some unplanned time-off from work from 24th Dec till 30th Dec for which I haven't planned anything and with Missus being away, I think I could really use that time to do something that I haven't been able to do in a long time.

I am looking for a place where I could do some volunteer work, something for under privileged, some work for people in need or anything that would make a positive impact for the ones who need at this time of the year.

I am willing to fly to neighbouring countries too. I can speak Native English and Hindi with some broken German. Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot.
Cheers
S

I would assume that if you contacted some local churches near your home, they could offer you something. In addition, there is Caritas - they are quite active, so you could call them!

This is great guys. Salvation Army group seems exactly what I was looking for. Now hoping to hear back from them.
Thanks Sbrinz.
