Student Weaam With Her Covid-19 Volunteer Story

Weaam Bassiouni | University of Auckland Global Studies

Celebration of Student Volunteer Week 2021 is ongoing!

Student volunteer Weaam Bassiouni shared her volunteering experience with Auckland City Mission with us. During the Covid-19 situation last year, Weaam has joined the volunteering team to deliver food parcels to people in need.

“We acknowledge how crucial this is as many people rely on it,” said Weaam.

“After learning the situation, I decided to join the team as it was a great opportunity to give back to the community.”

Weaam said that even its just a few hours a year, volunteering can bring humility and rewarding down to your heart, so she encourages giving a try as possible.

“There is nothing like volunteering that makes you feel a certain way”, she said.

Student Volunteer Week 2021 #SVW2021 runs from March 15th to 21st.
