Why Volunteering is important

Volunteering can provide a healthy boost, self-confidence, self-esteem and life satisfaction ; when you volunteer you do good for others and the community which provides a sense of accomplishment.

The following are the benefits of volunteering to the community and to the volunteers :

Benefits for the community

  • Information (what to do or where to go when you have which problem)
  • Preventive screening, early detection of chronic diseases
  • Curative benefit on some illness, better knowledge on the management of the chronic ones in the community, and rehabilitation.
  • Improved social economic status
  • Reducing healthcare costs by the medical volunteers providing healthcare services at zero cost.
