Sixteen students from Texas A&M, Weill Cornell Medical College-Qatar and Carnegie Mellon University-Qatar in the Education City have volunteered to work with the Qatar Society for Rehabilitation of Special Needs (QSRSN). The students showed a strong spirit in volunteering and working with the current volunteers in the QSRSN to help the disabled. Ameer Al Mulla, executive manager, stated that he was looking forward to going with the volunteers and had great expectations from the volunteers, who will be part of Qatar’s institutions at all levels. “The society works as a charitable civil institute for the disabled, from all types of disabilities. It is based on the philosophy that it does not discriminate on the basis of religion, sex or language among residents in its services to the disabled,” said Al Mulla. Salah Morsi, a teaching specialist and an active volunteer in the society, presented an introduction about the society’s releases related to disability. Al Mulla pointed out the necessity of grouping the volunteers into different tasks, each doing certain tasks. Also restating the importance of continuing this activities and employing new students to volunteer into this field and concluded saying that nations are built by the hands of those who love them, who love charitable work hoping for the volunteers a successful and blessed career.
