Caritas in Spain to train volunteers to work with AIDS victims and mentally ill

.- The Caritas office in Valencia, Spain, announced this week it will begin offering formation classes in October to train volunteers who will work with the mentally ill, the homeless and with victims of AIDS. According to the AVAN news agency, volunteers who complete the program will be able to provide support to those who are being cared for at the various Caritas centers. 

Caritas officials said volunteers were needed to help provide care to the mentally ill and to AIDS victims in different cities in the region of Valencia.

In addition, “the chronically and terminally ill that are hospitalized are also in need of care,” they said. 

In order to be a Caritas volunteer one must be “legally an adult, have a minimum formation and sensitivity for social problems, and be responsible and available.” 

The training sessions will be from October 17 to November 30; January 16 to February 22; May 8 to June 14. Classes will be held at the Caritas offices in Valencia, Mondays and Wednesdays from 7-9pm.
