The National Archives launches “Hand in Hand” initiative in collaboration with the Red Crescent


In collaboration with the Emirates Red Crescent Authority, the National Archives organized a human initiative under the slogan “Hand in Hand”, which allows the NA staff to get involved in the voluntary corporate work of the Red Crescent projects and initiatives. This initiative comes as part of the social responsibility undertaken by the NA and of its efforts in charity and humanitarian work and to stress the importance of volunteering in fostering sustainable development.
Many employees demonstrated their willingness to volunteer in the Red Crescent projects, and they confirmed their preparedness to be assigned, at any time, by the authority to participate in any of its projects or initiatives that suit them. This reflects their interest in supporting the society, meeting its urgent needs, and serving its issues at social, cultural, and economic levels.
The NA shows its interest in this initiative because the UAE considers voluntary work as a national and community service. Our ancestors instilled in their children the sense of voluntary and humanitarian work, which has become an important part of the UAE approach. The NA encourages the voluntary work that makes use of the employees’ qualifications and capabilities in projects and initiatives launched by the Emirates Red Crescent Authority.  
Given its belief in the importance of voluntary work, which is a national responsibility, the NA has participated in this initiative to provide humanitarian help and serve the homeland and community members. The social responsibility assumed by the NA reflects its love for the UAE and its appreciation for those living on its land.
Volunteering is a civilized behavior that promotes the community culture, heightens sense of responsibility, and enhances social solidarity values, and its positive impact appears on people’s life.
