The people at Iguality

From one of our volunteer therapists

Veronica is one of the dozens volunteers active at Iguality, using her background in clinical psychology to support a wide range of people through Iguality with weekly therapy. She worked with refugees, homeless people and other people in situations at risk, and her help has been exemplary for our work.

“Iguality is an excellent organization. Working with them is extremely satisfying due to the clear and large social impact it has on people’s lives.”
