Global Volunteer Day marked

Bahrain joined the world in celebrating the International Volunteer Day 2018 yesterday. The occasion aimed to boost the values of voluntary and charity work in the civil society as well as government and non-government organisations. The event will be observed this year under the theme “Volunteers Build Resilient Communities”.

Volunteerism, with its humanitarian and social dimensions, is considered as a civilisational behaviour that boosts solidarity in the community. It has a positive impact on people’s life and contributes to fostering the community culture, the sense of responsibility and the spirit of voluntary initiative.

Marking the occasion, Labour and Social Development Minister Jameel Humaidan said Bahrain accords a great importance to backing voluntary work and promoting its noble humanitarian values.
