Sample Answer:

Dear Sir,

I am William Jones, a student of Business Administration of Etowah University. I am excited to read your advertisement on unpaid works at the Daily Morning Sun on 5th February. I have always been passionate to contribute to the society. And it would the great opportunity to work you hospital to content my passion.

It goes without saying that serving at hospital is to serve the humanity. If you give me the chance to serve the humanity, I would like to work at your hospital. I worked several volunteer works in my school days such as cleaning neigbourhood, green movement, and so on, but never worked at hospital. So, I thought it would be if I can do a volunteer work at a hospital.

However, I can do any type of works in your hospital like, take caring of patients, cleaning floors, filling forms for patients, answering the phone, etc. But I prefer to take care of patient because I thought it would be pleasure to nurse patients.

I can start right now and I am available for works from Thursday to Saturday, three hours per day.

I look forward to receiving your response.

Yours sincerely,
William Jones
