Solidarity Volunteering: Strong Relationships, Mutual Development

Pat Campbell’s Letter From The Field

Former Palms volunteer Patrick Campbell and Solomon Islander Naka with their new solar panel.

After spending time to understand the culture, the people and language, it is now like being at home where, when you observe, you do not just see the images but the bigger picture, who is who, what they are doing and why.


I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again. - Stephen Krebbet
