New Delhi: Over the last months, as the COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged across the world, volunteers have been at the forefront of medical, community and societal responses. Headlines in the world’s media have paid credit to volunteers for all kinds of work, from helping to provide medical care, to doing shopping for vulnerable neighbours, or checking up on elderly people living alone,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah Chief Scout For India at the celebration of International Volunteers Day at webinar organised in association with IFUNA International Federation of United Nations Associations.
“This year’s International Volunteers Day campaign thanks volunteers worldwide and also sheds light on the difficulties and needs of volunteers during the pandemic. Showing the impact of volunteers in their communities during this crisis, we will reach to all corners of the globe with the message “Together We Can Through Volunteering.” added Dr. Marwah.
Dr. Marwah also repeated the aims of Scouts and Guides. He said, ”The purpose of Scouting is also to encourage the physical, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual development of young people so that they take a constructive place in society as responsible citizens, and as members of their local, national and international communities. That means to create volunteers through this organization.
Large number of International Forums related to films, television, media, art and culture joined hands in celebrating International Volunteers Day including Indo Wales Creative Forum, Indo Nigerian Film Association, Indo Polish Film Association, Indo Uzbekistan Film And Cultural Forum, Indo Ghana Film And Cultural Forum, Indo Belgium Film And Cultural Forum, Indo German Film And Cultural Forum, Indo Peru Film And Cultural Frum, Indo Brazil Film And Cultural Forum.
