Get Involved

I want to volunteer!

OA Patients are OAFI’s reason for being. They are the engine that motivates us and encourages to continue with our work. To volunteer for the Foundation means to commit yourself to our cause and to help us carry out our initiatives. Sometimes, we need the support of volunteers to publicize the awareness activities we conduct, participate in their organization and development, find out the experience and opinion of participants regarding the disease and to be part of study groups on pathology. In other words, we need people who help us give osteoarthritis a voice and to grant it the importance it deserves in our society.

If you are keen to collaborate with us, please let us know via the subscription form and we will get back to you.
