Humanitarian volunteers gather to mark IVD in Argentina
23 November 2004

Buenos Aires: The White Helmet Commission (WHC) is celebrating International Volunteer Day by mobilizing thousands of volunteers on 4 December in Argentina.

At least 1,500 volunteers from different regions of the country will be mobilized in the capital Buenos Aires. Donor and government agencies, non-governmental organizations and members of the diplomatic corps are also invited to recognize and celebrate volunteerism in the country.

White Helmets are local people on stand-by to help in case a natural or humanitarian disaster strikes. The teams are composed by people from various national volunteer corps who support activities in humanitarian emergency operations.
