More than 30,000 people volunteer to fight coronavirus in Bahrain

More than 30,000 people have registered to help fight the coronavirus in Bahrain since the e-Volunteer platform launched last week.

The National Taskforce for Combating the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has asked for people to sign up to help with medical and administrative services as well as logistic support in the coming weeks.

If you’re interested in signing up, click here for the Bahrain volunteering website. There you’ll be asked your education level, profession, availability and what area you would like to volunteer in.

The taskforce said today that the first group of volunteers to be contacted would be those with a medical background who have applied to volunteer within field work and health services.

In a statement, the taskforce “expressed its utmost gratitude to the Kingdom’s selfless citizens, who have truly demonstrated the values of national social responsibility and solidarity in confronting the spread of the virus, noting that the Kingdom’s strong social fabric remains key to overcoming all current and future challenges”.
