VOLUNTEER WITH MALAYSIAN RED CRESCENT
The value of our volunteers is tremendous, enabling every National Security in our zone to deliver service to the most vulnerable, to alleviate the suffering of those affected by disasters, conflicts and emergencies, and to enhance community resilience and build social capital.
The passion and commitment of the volunteers is priceless. Determining the impact of the contribution of volunteerism is complex and multifaceted. National Societies receive enormous contributions of time, talent and skills. Communities are healthier and more cohesive through active citizen engagement. People receive important services from volunteers and through volunteering, people gain experience, improve their employment and life skills and have a greater sense of belonging and well being.
There are more than 200,000 youth volunteers between the age group of 13 and 25 years old and many started their involvement by being part of the Malaysian Red Crescent units in secondary schools. They stayed on and attended all the training programmes as well as on the field training provided by the MRC.
These young volunteers are exposed to many training and activities to inculcate moral and ethical values and to help improve personal skills and capacity. In addition to group activities organised by Red Crescent units in schools, the MRC also collaborates with other sister National Red Cross And Red Crescent Societies to provide opportunities for its youth to participate in International Youth Camps which expose young volunteers in different situations and cultural conditions in helping to empower the young. Other training activities include mass cooking where volunteers are taught on how to cook for larger groups, manage inventories in relief centers, health and hygiene and more.
Being a MRC volunteer brings together volunteers and organisation from different countries, providing practical and technical support in the provision of humanitarian aid and contributing to the strengthening of local capacity and resilience of disaster-affected communities.
