The VFFA has been pushing for our volunteers to be appropriately compensated with legitimate expenses so that they are not out of pocket. These expenses might include a loss of income for many volunteers.

This type of assistance is designed to assist our volunteers and is not intended to become a payment scheme.

The VFFA President was interviewed by The Project on this matter.
