    Hii everyone

    I was wondering if there are any organizations in Dubai / UAE where we could volunteer to help the less fortunate people around. I am currently workin in Kuwait and I did volunteer in Red Crescent, Kuwait. They used to arrange trips twice a week to hospitals for mentally challenged & handicapped children and for children with Leukaemia. However, they are all Arab children and since I do not know Arabic I felt pretty helpless as communication is the most important thing in situations like this. I would like to know if there are organizations in Dubai wherein we can lend support to our Indians who are in need.

    Would like to hear from you all

    Regards
    Geetha

    hii zeenath

    thanks a lot for ur reply... well no im not specific about working only in hospitals or places like red crescent... i would be more than happy 2 lend a helping hand 2 anyone who needs it... but like i said the reason i couldnt do much wen i joined red crescent is coz the hospitals we visited consisted mostly of arab children and since i dont know 2 speak arabic i felt pretty helpless as communication with these people is the main aspect in these situations. we need 2 make them feel wanted inspite of whatever defects they may have... i want 2 realy b able 2 help people and if i can bring about a little bit of cheerfulness in anyone's life i would consider myself blessed... thanx a lot for ur help zeenath.. i would really appreciate if you could let me know any places wer help can b provided :)

    well now comin back 2 me.. im a keralaite.. born and brought up in kuwait.. did my schooling ere til 12th.. den i went 2 chennai 2 do my engineering , came back 2 kuwait wid my parents and worked ere for abt 3 years... now i got a job offer in dubai and am going 2 b moving der soon.. probably by july.. will definitely let u know wen im going 2 b coming der.. im realy happy dat im able 2 meet good friends through dis website.. im going 2 b realy new 2 dubai so its gr8 to know dat der r friends around... :mrgreen: :-D

    Regards

    hi geetha,

    i am a special needs mother and there are lot of schools and organisations who need volunteers.

    You may visit the site Special Needs Families Group - Dubai, UAE which is a support group for parents like me.

    you can also get in touch with AL NOOR TRAINING CENTRE FOR SPECIAL NEEDS.

    i think thier website should be alnooruae.com...... pls check.

    any clarifications, so get back,

    OOSHA

    What kind of help are you looking for? Are you a registered charity? What is your plan and how are you going about it?
    I have friends in Morocco, do you mind if they visit you and get an idea of your project?
    Look forward to receiving a response on this forum
