On the morning of November 7 th , WSB held its first volunteer coffee morning in Al Nakhla Residential resort, a WSB partner. The event was successfully attended by almost 40 attendees who showed great interest in what WSB had to offer. The main purpose of this gathering was to introduce and involve the expat community in volunteer opportunities as well as with WSB. A presentation, led by the WSB Volunteer Liaison Gema, portrayed all the opportunities. These opportunities included working with SANAD Cancer Society for kids, Moonframe, DCSA, Ennesi Farms and Open Paws. Projects closed and projects under commencement were all discussed.
The WSB team was delighted to see attendees step forward and register for voluntary work. Hence, not only was the coffee morning a success for “opportunities get to know,” but it was a great way of meeting new people from a diverse set of cultures and backgrounds. Living in an environment such as that of Saudi Arabia, getting to know new people is a challenge and through such coffee mornings WSB hopes to break the ice. A coffee morning will be held every now and then as soon as new opportunities
arrive to update the valued community as well as request their honorable involvement.
