Professionals wanted to serve community

19-Nov-2016 :

Dubai: Doctors, nurses, engineers, teachers, lawyers, therapists — your services are needed.

Dubai’s Community Development Authority (CDA) has appealed to professionals in all fields to volunteer their time and expertise during their free time to give back to community and serve underprivileged families and individuals.

Volunteering hours in Dubai have more than doubled in the first nine months of the year compared to the whole of 2015. As of Wednesday, volunteers have clocked in 60,000 hours equivalent to a savings of Dh4.9 million. There are more than 5,500 registered volunteers, 2,500 of whom are actively serving the community.

But demand is also high for volunteers who have specialisations since they make up only about two per cent of the total volunteers, Hana Bakkar Al Harthi, director of Social Cohesion Department at CDA, said.
