The volunteers, from the young to the seniors, are eager to participate in Kuwait’s celebration of democracy via providing assistance during the elections.
Speaking on this occasion, Anwar Al-Hasawi — the society’s deputy chairman of the board — told KUNA that volunteers would be tasked with providing first aid medical assistance during the election in coordination with the Ministry of Health in addition to assisting senior voters in their journey to cast their vote.
