Hello, I’m Dolly and I’ve been on the move my entire life. Growing up I have lived in various cities in India, London – England, Dusseldorf- Germany, Montreal and now Vancouver. I’ve learnt to be open to different cultures and to make friends quickly. Along the way, in addition to Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu, I’ve picked up a smattering of German and French. I’m married to a very supportive husband, Rakesh. We are raising three teenagers in Vancouver and I try to follow the Buddhist way of life. I consider myself very lucky to have found ORC where I made great friends and can have a chance to practice what I believe in! So far, I’ve been to Cambodia 2014, the Canadian Ukraine Foundation Mission 2014, India 2015 and next year, I’ll be in training to be a Mission Coordinator in Cambodia.
I believe in the miracle of giving. In every mission, where a great amount of hard work, dedication and time and effort is involved, I still get back more than what I give.
I play many roles but giving care by nursing and nurturing is my chosen career. Currently, I work as a registered nurse at the BC Children’s Hospital in the Paediatric Post-Op Recovery room. Prior to that, I was a Neonatal ICU nurse for 14 years, and Neurology Nurse Clinician for 2 years. I’ve also worked as a research nurse.
With ORC, I’m able to play a tiny role in helping a kid change his/her life for the better and get the love and dignity that every human deserves.
