[Personal Experiences When Joined Volunteering-2019]
On November 23, 2019 got the first chance to join volunteering program in college. So many interesting experiences after being a participant in this program. We went to Garut, West Java to realize our volunteering program.
So many kinds we shared with them such as cooking some foods with housewives there, playing and learning something with some children who’re cute. Even if we stay for two days one night it will be an unforgettable memory.
Until one night we hold a show to appreciate some skills what they have. It was the most beautiful show I have ever seen. And after a few hours there was a truly unexpected incident: one of the houses was burnt down and one person was dead. You can imagine after see the public entertain the atmosphere was turned around. All people just run, crying, and scared.
That’s truly a night full of surprises. And some people are trying to help and calm each other down.
The next day we help to clean up and say goodbye.
