The Zayed Giving Initiative has intensified its voluntary programmes in Africa, as part of its global international aid campaign.

The campaign seeks to deliver humanitarian assistance to 3 million children and elderly people, with the participation of thousands of volunteers in countries across the world, in line with the humanitarian legacy the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

The initiative also comes as part of the One Million Volunteers Campaign, which seeks to create a culture of voluntary and charitable work, as well as partnerships among individuals and institutions.

The volunteers of the Zayed Giving initiative in countries around the world have completed more than one million hours of volunteer work in villages in Egypt, Sudan, Kenya, Somalia and Morocco, in partnership with humanitarian voluntary work centres.

The initiative also intensified the work of its voluntary teams at the local and international levels in various health, educational and cultural fields, which aimed at spreading participation in voluntary work and empowering youths.

Emirati heart surgeon Dr Adel Al Shamri, CEO of the Zayed Giving Initiative, said that volunteers are role models in the field of collective work, as well as in humanitarian and societal volunteering. – Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/general/1395272776760.html
