11 Quotation of former volunteers: We got gladly surprised that everything works out so well. […] Melsbroek is a peaceful small village. The people are good and friendly towards us and we already feel a little bit at home. That is very important for us because we miss our families, friends and dogs. The work in the MS center gives us a great chance to help patients, address new challenges and also to get to know interesting and nice people. The discovering of your beautiful country is an additional pleasure. Ewa and Piotrek from Poland, volunteers in 2004/05 Click Escape if you want to finish this presentation… Back to summary…

So the level of computer knowledge is very different. The volunteers try to give helpful assistance for everybody: If somebody knows what to do, they switch on the computer and do not disturb them. They wait for questions. If somebody is a beginner they try to teach him about the computer, the internet and the software step by step. They try to open more services for PwMS with special topics – like newspapers online, shopping, pen pals, chatting etc… and they try to show the PwMS how it works. Back to summary…

18 A guide to learn There is a guide in Dutch and French in the cybercafe with which the volunteers can teach the PwMS how to use the computer and show them several opportunities. Either the volunteers propose it to new customers or the PwMS simply ask by themselves for it. Click Escape if you want to finish this presentation… Back to summary…
