OLKA® refers to coordinated organization and volunteering activity at hospitals. Our purpose is to offer patients and their loved ones unhurried encounters and support in coming to terms with their disease. OLKA is a joint operation of HUS and HyTe [Community of NGOs].

OLKA volunteer activities, Meilahti Triangle Hospital
You will recognize OLKA volunteers by their light green vests. These volunteers are trained for their duties, and they are bound by a confidentiality obligation. The purpose of the volunteers is not to replace nursing staff. The volunteers are there for you!
At Meilahti Triangle Hospital, the volunteers provide peer support (on wards 5A, 6A, 6B, 7A and 7B). You may also inquire about peer support or try out the peer-to-peer search engine of the Peer Hub.
