“Being a volunteer requires a great deal of dedication, passion and commitment. It is not a job and every single day spent fulfilling it, gives enormous satisfaction to all volunteers. The feeling of giving back to society and the less fortunate and the sense of achievement when you managed to make a difference especially during disasters and ends with a simple thank you, is what makes your day” said youth volunteer Lai Wei Keat.
Lai has been involved in many disaster releif efforts and is also the chairperson for South East Asia Youth Network (SEAYN) representing Malaysia in many international events. He is also active in the Red Cross Red Crescent Asia Pacific Youth Network (APYN), as part from his SEAYN profile, among others. His experience of almost 20 years has given him contentment and he vows to continue this quest and serve as many as he can.
