THE "VOLUNTEER" PROGRAM

Enina Inna
The head of the program is Enina Inna

  Volunteers are the soul of Hesed. And this is the truth. Many times it was proved and tried by life and welfare activity of Jewish Communities.
"Jewish World" - a club for studying Jewish traditions, holidays and culture works in Almaty now. Volunteers are in charge in this club. The total number of volunteers is 115 people. The number of volunteers working for medical programs is more than usual, 41 professional doctor and nurses.

  To celebrate "Day of Volunteer" became a good tradition in Hesed Polina.
On Sunday, 17 December 2000 Almaty volunteers went to Medeo (mountain skate rink) on comfortable buses. Everybody admired scenery and enjoyed a fresh air. The "bravest" people managed to climb dam and reached the coping, and they could get a wonderful view to the mountains.
The day passed very quickly, nobody wanted to leave but there was a big holiday program to come.
