Cape Town - Post Report Question and Answers
What volunteer opportunities are available locally?
There are many. - Apr 2021

Not really sure -- haven't looked into it. I don't know of any other consulate staff that do a lot of local volunteering, except perhaps through their religious congregation. - Oct 2017
