Ruth receives social support services and thanks to an amazing VTF
volunteer, Ruth is able to travel the world – without leaving home.
VTF volunteer Robyn is passionate about travel and embarks on
walking journeys all over the world. Once a week she brings her
travels to life by sharing photos and stories in Ruth’s home. Robyn
takes Ruth on a journey and makes her feel part of an exciting
adventure. Ruth feels she is visiting the places that she has always
wanted to go to. “Robyn has put the life back in me,” she says.
Ruth, who has 40 years of nursing experience, is also a volunteer.
She and her dog Missy visit residents at a local nursing home
regularly. Ruth helps with craft activities and shares some of the “life”
that Robyn has given her.
