We work with volunteers

Our activities are highly responsible. They are carried out by the Social Welfare Provision group at St. Andrew Social Association Varna. The group consists of a nurse and two social workers. We also have two supernumerary nurses, who join in if necessary for the most severe cases.

"We love our work, and everything we do for our subscribers is lead by the principle that not only should we be good professionals, but we should be human beings first and foremost!"
