Be a volunteer with Baptist World Aid Australia and use your time to do more than you thought you could in response to poverty.

Volunteers established Baptist World Aid Australia and continue to be our lifeblood. We rely on the skills, talents and time of our wonderful volunteers. Their contributions help keep administration costs to a minimum, ensuring we maximise the funds that can be sent overseas.
