<p>Healthcare workers are being hailed as modern-day heroes in the fight against the coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic. Now, with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia accepting volunteers in its fight against the contagion, both medical workers and non-healthcare professionals have their chance to serve the country.</p> <p>For those who have expressed their interest in volunteering, the Kingdom has two different types of Volunteer Programs. For those in the non-medical field, you can join the Saudi Red Crescent Volunteer Program. The volunteering opportunities will focus on health awareness drives, distribution of relief packets, epidemic investigation, and the like.</p> <blockquote class="wp-block-quote"><p>“Volunteering is a noble act and a great behavior that supports efforts to combat the epidemic. Thanks to every volunteer who has devoted their time and effort to serving our dear homeland.”</p><cite>– Dr. Tawfiq Al-Rabiah, Saudi health minister</cite></blockquote> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="999" height="666" src="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/Doctors-walking-burqah-1.jpg" alt="COVID-19: Saudi Arabia Accepting Volunteers in the Fight Against the Epidemic" class="wp-image-10571" title="COVID-19: Saudi Arabia Accepting Volunteers in the Fight Against the Epidemic" srcset="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/Doctors-walking-burqah-1.jpg 999w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/Doctors-walking-burqah-1-300x200.jpg 300w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/Doctors-walking-burqah-1-768x512.jpg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 999px) 100vw, 999px" /></figure> <p>Healthcare professionals, on the other hand, can volunteer under the auspices of the Ministry of Health (MoH), KSA.
