VOLUNTEERING AT KACCH
    Our volunteers are exceptional individuals who take that extra step to make a difference in
    the lives of children and their families. Throughout the years, KACCH volunteers have
    unselfishly given their time by contributing in many different ways. Whether it is by playing

    KACCH Child Life Programmes are offered in six government hospitals across Kuwait. Our
    volunteers have an opportunity to choose their preferred hospital and days they wish to
    volunteer, however, final placement is made according to available openings and
    programmtic needs. Volunteering hours are from 9 am to 12 pm (Sunday to Thursday).

    working together to organise a range of activities from which children can choose from.
    SPECIAL EVENTS: Various events are held in the hospitals each year bringing
    entertainment, fun and joy for both the children and their families. Be it birthdays, national
    days, celebrations or parties, our volunteers provide a helping hand with a positive spirit!

    DECORATING PAEDIATRIC WARDS: One of our goals is to bring about a more child friendly
    environment in the hospitals where children are treated. We are constantly looking for
    talented artists and skillful individuals who would like to contribute their time by bringing to life
    the corridors, playrooms and paediatric wards with colourful images, or by making mobiles
    and soft furnishings such as cushions and curtains.

    FUNDRAISING: Various fundraising events are organised throughout each year in order to
    raise money and awareness for KACCH and its Child Life Programmes. Volunteers are
    welcome to participate in such events or may also collaborate with KACCH to come up with
    new fundraising ideas.
