Who We Are

Become a volunteer of the Red Crescent of Kyrgyzstan

The volunteer of the Red Crescent of Kyrgyzstan can be any person who has a sincere desire to help needy people on a gratuitous basis. Currently, the Red Crescent volunteers are schoolchildren, students, residents of rural communities, former recipients of programs (for example, people who have recovered from tuberculosis), and others.

Volunteers are actively involved in conducting public actions, humanitarian operations, round tables, conferences.

The Red Crescent tries to create favorable conditions for the work and further development of volunteers. Becoming a volunteer is a good opportunity to learn something completely new through charity, humanity and willingness.

The volunteers of the Red Crescent of Kyrgyzstan work in different directions and can choose the sphere most interesting for them:

• Working with children in difficult situations

• Working with lonely elderly people
