Publié: 18 août 2014 16:09 CET

I have been a volunteer with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) Quneitra branch for five years. I have been committed to volunteering work since the beginning of the crisis in Syria and have participated in many training courses, including first aid and disaster management.

I have participated in many field missions during this crisis, such as evacuating dead bodies from Beer-Ajam and transferring injured people from Quneitra to Damascus. I have also worked with assessment and relief in different areas across the governorate with a commitment to neutrality and impartiality.

I'm currently working on monthly reports for the relief materials provided by the World Food Program at the branch,  in addition to monitoring the movement and distribution of SARC warehouse in Qunaitra. I spend all of my time with my SARC colleagues and I am happy to have them around me.
