Volunteer

LEGIS has provided space and guidance to hundreds of Local and International volunteers interested in supporting our work and activities.

Our works and activities wouldn’t be as various and as successful without the selfless contributions from the hundreds volunteers we’ve hosted so far. Their dedicated and enthusiastic work has contributed towards our common goal, helping us provide humanitarian aid and protection to the people in need. Through the work of Volunteers, LEGIS had grown and diversified its activities in the humanitarian field.

We are enormously grateful for every minute of selfless service and dedication to the common cause of helping people in distress to all of you out there!
