Service is My Joy Ceremony

The Hope Club of AUK hosted an event on March 20, 2011 titled, "Service is My Joy- Ceremony" where club members shared their volunteering experience with the campus community. The event, which took place in the AUK auditorium from 2-3 pm, inspired many members of the AUK community and encouraged them to involve themselves in more volunteering activities.

The events host, Rana Abd- Hamid, initiated the event by talking about how the volunteering opportunity she took with the aid of the Hope Club in association with LOYAC helped change the way she saw things. She also personally thanked all of the members who were involved in the volunteering with KACCH and the Kuwait Handicap Association and then went on to introduce the Hope Club's President - Mohammad Abu Mazzen. He gave a brief speech about how his perspective was altered after he volunteered at the Kuwait Handicap Association.

Rana then introduced two students Ossamah Farah and Sara Raji, who were both volunteers with the children at KACCH. They both helped the audience understand how no matter what the situation of any child, the bottom line to their happiness was a will to play and smile. After their speeches a short movie was screened showcasing some of the Hope Club members and theirs journey with KACCH.

Club members Dana Bandar, who presented a short poem, and Sara Qaddura who offered a moving speech about her experience with some of the Handicap members of our society she worked with during the semester break. The volunteers' powerful words gave the audience a sense of how difficult it was to realize that those ailing members of our society are seriously overlooked and that despite physical differences; they all just want to be loved.

Another short film was presented showing the experiences of those Hope members who were involved with the Handicap association. AMIDEAST intern Christopher Asmar, was invited to share his views on the Hope Club "Fun Day" that was held with the Kuwait Handicap Society. He described his journey and his perspective helping the audience get a better view into the world of volunteering.
