Where and why did it all start?

Our story began after the tsunami hit in 2004 when two friends, Dr Preethi Venkatesham and Dr Karen Patten tried to volunteer on a short term basis. They were refused due to a variety of reasons, in particular relating to the length of time they were available to volunteer-which at that time was two months. So despite obvious need remaining, they were unable to assist.

The desire to volunteer remained and they became increasingly aware of a need amongst friends and colleagues who had the same desire to volunteer, but had also experienced difficulties. They persevered and went to work with Lily of the Valley in 2005 and returned with a bigger team of volunteers in 2006 and 2007. This team included Dr Patricia Rijsenburg and Dr Samina Shah who became trustees and TWOWEEKS was formed.
