Sheikh Hamdan launches campaign to appeal for volunteers in Dubai

The activities that people can volunteer for range from ambulance sterilization and data entry to emergency response and caring for the elderly

Dubai Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum launched a new volunteering campaign called ‘Your City Needs You…Volunteer for Dubai’, organised in collaboration with the Dubai Health Authority and Watani Al Emarat Foundation.

The campaign was launched on Tuesday, March 24, via the Day for Dubai app.

Volunteers can participate by dedicating a day fulfilling a pre-assigned task based on their skills and experience.

Under the Community Support programme on the app, volunteers can signup for services ranging from ambulance sterilization and data entry to caring for the elderly and community service.

“This is part of our social responsibility and our duty to help safeguard the welfare of society,” Sheikh Hamdan said in a statement reported by official news agency WAM.

Under the Healthcare Support programme on the app, medical personnel including doctors of all specialties, nurses, pharmacists and medics are encouraged to volunteer their services to aid emergency response teams.

“Our aim is to ensure the highest levels of protection against the global pandemic we are facing and support the government’s efforts to combat it. This is a great opportunity to show our unity and our love for our city,” added Sheikh Hamdan.

The age requirements and minimum educational qualifications for the different tasks are listed within the app.

Volunteers can calculate the hours they have contributed and apply for an achievement certificate too.

“My message to everyone is to volunteer to join the dedicated teams that are working around-the-clock to protect our community,” said Sheikh Hamdan.
