KRCS’ ju­ve­nile vol­un­teer club in­stills benev­o­lence in kids

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

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
