COVID-19 pandemic has placed significant strains on health systems, essential public services and communities. To fight the battle against it, a vast number of volunteers have been working day in, day out for the communities.
Volunteers are one of the first responders and it is not possible to mitigate the crisis without the crucial help of our volunteers. Hence it is
important to recognize the contributions of the volunteers and volunteer groups and encourage more young people to join the force.
