KRCS’ juvenile volunteer club instills benevolence in kids
Kuwait Red Crescent Society’s (KRCS) special child volunteer club has been assembled to promote such virtues as altruism and goodwill, the charity’s deputy president said yesterday. Speaking at a ceremony to cap off a month’s worth of events put together by the club, Anwar Al-Hasawi pointed out that some 140 children joined the festivities this year, all of whom were taken under the wings of highly qualified trainers. He added that volunteerism and development are often co-related and that the initiative has “left a new mark” on the venerable Kuwaiti charity’s long odyssey.
Meanwhile, Dr Hawazen AlZahrani, project consultant at the Arab Red Crescent and Red Cross Organization, hailed Kuwait as a bastion of philanthropy, saying Kuwaitis’ penchant for volunteerism was admirable.
She noted that Kuwait’s humanitarian endeavors are well-chronicled and prove just how eager the country’s leaders are in promoting such moral excellence. Tariq Al-Kandari, a dentist and KRCS volunteer, said that he shared some of his medical knowledge with the kids, particularly, the importance of dental health.
Similarly, Issa Al-Kandari and Fatma Al-Sharah, two child volunteers, said that they both cherish the experience of working with KRCS, one that has given them valuable skills that would serve them well in their lives. —KUNA
