UAE celebrates International Volunteer Day

posted on 06/12/2006: 681 views


The UAE will be celebrating International Volunteer Day (IVD) along with more than half the countries of the world. "1076 volunteers are working with the UAE Red Crescent Society (RCS) to provide support to the needy, seniors and orphans" said Director General of the Volunteer Department at RCS Mohammed Nasser Al Otaiba.



Emirates Post marked the occasion with new stamps. 100 million volunteers across the world work together on projects and campaigns promoting their contributions to economic and social development at local, national and international levels.



IVD is a unique opportunity for government agencies, non-profit organizations, community groups, the private sector and volunteer-involving organizations to work together to attain common goals. IVD was established by the United Nations General Assembly through Resolution 40/212 on 17 December 1985. Since then, governments, the UN system and civil society organizations have successfully joined volunteers around the world to celebrate the Day on December 5th. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
