First Lady Mrs. Asmaa Al Assad met yesterday volunteers from the Syria Trust for Development on the International Volunteer Day which occurs on the fifth of December.
In her speech addressed to the volunteers, Mrs. Al-Assad stressed that spreading the culture of volunteerism will help in achieving a strong social credit, because the real credit of any country is the social one.
Mrs. Al Assad said: "It is about how people love each others, work with each others and how much they are united."
She stressed the need to be united and able to take collective and systematic work systematic and benefit from all of the existing capacities without a cancellation or marginalization of any.
Mrs. Al Assad added: " The unity and power of the country lie in its diversity. We must be open to the people, more to those who are different from us socially, culturally, politically, religiously, ethnically..etc than to those who are similar to us. We can learn from them and give them back in order to collectively built a much better future."
Mrs. Al Assad added: "We must seek to increase our social credit which we inherited from our ancestors about seven thousands years back in history in the upcoming era. This trust has existed in our bloods. Everyone of us has pure Syrian genes and must rise up to the level of responsibility in order to hand it to our children and grandchildren."
The most beautiful of what Mrs. Al Assad said was: "There is a huge difference between we love our country and we love and give it…we only feel others' pain and help them to ease it…and the most important is the difference between we state what we can do to help our country and do even what we do was tiny and small."
Volunteer Hind Ayman kahef described the meeting with Mrs. Asmaa Al Assad as was very civilized and sophisticated one. Mrs. Al Assad made us realize the importance of what we are doing to help our country and people, no matter was simple.
We left the First Lady with hearts full of enthusiasm to offer our utmost capacity for our country and kind Syrian people.
