Yesterday an international volunteer center was opened in the capital. According to Vice Minister Daniyar Kadyrov, 54 projects have been launched this year to support volunteer organizations.

A year ago, the Hub of Central Asian Volunteers was created, to which both Turkiye and Azerbaijan wish to join.
