Voluntary work is a main part of PCR’s policy of survival. Since its start the center has been highly dependent on voluntary work in about 70 percent of its activities. On one hand, this helped PCR continue to function during times where almost no funds were granted to the center, while many other organizations suffered serious set backs. On the other hand, this allowed a fairly large amount of young Palestinians to get more involved in community service and popular struggle activities through which they help their community and country at large.
International volunteers have also been a integral part of the voluntary work at PCR, their services is somehow vital, especially that PCR’s work involves quite a big deal of communication with people from around the world in so many ways.
