At­tract vol­un­teers, qual­ify them to carry out na­tional tasks: KRCS

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Kuwait Red Cres­cent So­ci­ety’s (KRCS) Deputy Chair­man An­war Al-Ha­sawi yes­ter­day stressed the im­por­tance of at­tract­ing vol­un­teers to train and qual­ify them to carry out var­i­ous na­tional tasks. Ha­sawi said in a state­ment af­ter the open­ing of the Small Vol­un­teer Club at the KRCS head­quar­ters, which in­cludes 100 chil­dren un­der the slo­gan ‘Gen­er­a­tion Af­ter Gen­er­a­tion For The Ser­vice Of Hu­man­ity,’ stressed the im­por­tance of de­vel­op­ing chil­dren’s abil­i­ties and giv­ing them the skills that will ben­e­fit them in their vol­un­tary work and their lives in gen­eral. He also called for the use of the avail­able ca­pac­i­ties of chil­dren to pro­mote vol­un­teer work through en­gag­ing in vol­un­tary ac­tiv­i­ties to serve the com­mu­nity and par­tic­i­pate in the var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties or­ga­nized by the KRCS.

The club in­cludes pro­grams such as first aid train­ing, time man­age­ment, healthy cul­ture and sports, as well as den­tal hy­giene and preser­va­tion of the marine and wild en­vi­ron­ment. At the club, the chil­dren will rec­og­nize the prin­ci­ples of KRCS’ in­ter­na­tional move­ment and deal with peo­ple with spe­cial needs, he said. He pointed out that the es­tab­lish­ment of such projects is part of the so­ci­ety’s plan to cre­ate a kind of ef­fec­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion and in­volve­ment in so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties.

Mean­while, Dr Mo­ham­mad Al-Qat­tan, a health and phys­i­cal education spe­cial­ist and a par­tic­i­pant in the train­ing of chil­dren at the club, said that he is par­tic­i­pat­ing in this club as a coach to raise aware­ness of healthy food habits and healthy sports. He pointed out that the ma­jor­ity of this course is the­o­ret­i­cal and the prac­ti­cal part is chal­leng­ing by giv­ing up eat­ing sug­ars and un­healthy food, as chil­dren love chal­lenge, thus, en­cour­ag­ing them to ex­er­cise con­tin­u­ously. The small vol­un­teer club, which started its ac­tiv­i­ties yes­ter­day at the head­quar­ters of KRCS, will last un­til Au­gust 10 and will in­clude many ac­tiv­i­ties and ex­er­cises aimed at giv­ing the chil­dren a cul­ture of vol­un­teerism.
