I called the english language number last year as I wanted to volunteer and help them out. I dont speak Thai but I thought there must be falangs who need this service. Recorded message saying they would get back to me. No reply, nothing, ??? 

Good job you wasn't feeling suicidal, I also tried that number for a friend and never got an answer

So it would seem that the announcement put up by Thaivisa maybe incorrect regarding the English call back option. 

Never hurts to fully check out pre-prepared news releases supplied by others.

The appropriate visa AND Let's not forget the elephant in the middle of the room: work permits.  Yes they will need one

You might need a work permit for volunteer assistance like that.
It might be better to let them know you were available, and have an English-speaking Thai refer callers to you, than allowing your own number to be made widely available - maybe troublesome at the time of a Samaritans call!

 

Well done for volunteering!

I read this every time i open TVF. 

Certainly a needed service. 

But if you are phoning Samaritans or similar organisations, the last thing you want is to leave your number and wait for someone to hopefully call you back...

People in need of help or an ear to listen don't want a recording...
