A tribute to our volunteers

“Be the change you want to see in the world,” urged Mahatma Gandhi. Nowhere is this advice more evident than among the hundreds of volunteers of the WFH, whose efforts bring the WFH mission to life.

For over 50 years, WFH volunteers have been instrumental in the progress made toward achieving the vision of Treatment for All. Today, there is greater access to treatment products, more people are diagnosed, and more children are surviving into adulthood because of WFH programs and activities.

The 50th anniversary video, Volunteering Brings Change, is dedicated to the remarkable people who generously donate their time, expertise, and energy to help close the gap in care for people living with a bleeding disorder. Whether through leading workshops, training patients and families, building networks that evolve into vibrant national member organizations, or sharing knowledge with healthcare providers, volunteers give hope and encouragement where hope is sometimes all but lost.

As Yuri Zhulov, President of the Russian Hemophilia Society said, “Without the volunteers, we are nothing.”

On behalf of the WFH, to all our volunteers, we thank you most sincerely for your outstanding dedication and service to the WFH.
