As you well know, the last 10 years of the Mediterranea's existence, has been managed 100% by all different types of volunteers, amongst them we can include:

Those who are of the firm conviction that it is our moral obligation as human beings to conscientiously, altruistically and with a genuine love for mankind, help others less fortunate than themselves.

Those who are, incensed, in the heat of the moment, by the great injustices of the world and who with true intentions to accomplish great things later discover that their initial enthusiasm dwindles through time.

Those who are seduced by the romantic idea of forming part of an NGO but when they realize that this commitment demands both their time and energy, quickly lose interest .

Those who dream of exotic destinations and then discover that their journey is far less glamorous than what they imagined.

It is extremely important that anyone who intends to form part of an NGO, initially goes through a period of self-analysis in order to understand and appreciate that voluntary work is a moral obligation about helping others, it is exclusively and completely about others, about individuals who depend on us and our constancy and unwavering dedication. A totally voluntary organisation can only function successfully under these conditions.
