International Volunteer Day, is marked annually on December 5th. This day was
established as an international observance by the United Nations General Assembly in 1985.

International Volunteer Day serves as an opportunity to celebrate the contributions of volunteers and promote the spirit of volunteerism on local, national, and international levels.

This year the International Volunteer Day 2023 theme is: “If Everyone Did”

If everyone volunteered, the world would be a better place.

Today’s message from Toily Kurbanov, Executive Coordinator, United Nations Volunteers,

“Today I say to all volunteers around the globe: Thank you. For choosing to improve the world. For finding inspiration to act. For creating solutions. For keeping our hopes alive. And to the world, our message is: Imagine what we could achieve if all joined in. And volunteered.”

Palliative Care NSW would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge all the volunteers working in palliative care. Your dedication, hard work, and kindness is important and meaningful. Thank you for your contribution to patients with life-threatening illness and their families, and thank you for being an integral part of your palliative care team.
