Seeing the joy of community work

Kunal Jain, third year BMSc student, connects on a personal level with his community work. He volunteers with Adult Blind Swim London and Making Waves London as a swimming instructor, working with special needs individuals. Having special needs members in his own family, Jain says giving back in this way helps him pay the support and care forward.

The experience has been life changing. “I am now motivated to continue working with vulnerable individuals of our communities,” he said.

Jain is also the President of Friends of Médecins Sans Frontières at Western. “Our wonderful team of dedicated volunteers collaboratively encouraged the University and London community to engage in global health issues,” he explained. The group was recognized with a University Students’ Council Community Impact Award for the 2013-2014 year.
