JOIN thanks all volunteers on International Volunteer Day

Brussels, Belgium, 05. December 2018

Johanniter International takes the opportunity to thank the over 100,000 enthusiastic and passionate volunteers from all St John organisations. The work of JOIN is only made possible through the combined efforts of people who believe that our societies need people that care for other people.

We are proud of our members who volunteer their time and skills in numerous different fields to help making the world a better place. International Volunteer Day was designated by the United Nations in 1985 as an international observance day to celebrate the power and potential of volunteerism.

Members of Johanniter International mobilise thousands of volunteers every year that make a difference in local communities and on international level. We have connected volunteers from all over Europe though the Volunteer Swap programme and created a community of mutual exchange and support.
