Spends time helping seniors and healthcare workers
Location: Ireland, Ballybricken
“Delivering groceries, gardening or simply listening. I do everything I can to help”
Caillum is a Scout from Ballybricken, Ireland. He’s never been a stranger to voluntary work and to him, Covid-19 was just another opportunity to help. Only this time, he would focus on older people and frontline healthcare workers. “I created a poster, shared it on social media and placed it in high traffic areas,” he explains. The poster informed locals about the help Caillum could offer, including grocery delivery, gardening or even simple conversations while still maintaining social distance. Before Covid-19 struck, Caillum volunteered at the National Programme Services team for Scouting Ireland. There, he ensured that young scouts get an educational and enjoyable scouting experience. He regularly challenges them to a 17-day sustainable lifestyle experience in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
