Volunteers from the Red Crescent Movement

Our Lunch Lecture guests this week are two volunteers from the Red Crescent Movement in Palestine, Mohammed Nazer and Nael Rajabi. They are 25 years old and have been working as volunteers of the Red Crescent Movement for 12 years, for example as ambulance men. They are also a part of a group of clowns that travels around Palestine on behalf of the Red Crescent Movement, visiting schools and orphanages to entertain and educated children. The last few days they have been visiting the Red Cross in the Westfjords, and have been going to schools in the area to teach children about first aid. They have also visited their fellow ambulance men in the Westfjords to learn about their work.


In their Lunch Lecture talk they will discuss their work as volunteers of the Red Crescent Movement.

As before the Lunch Lecture begins at 12.10 on Friday, March 18, in the University Centre cafeteria.
