NEW DELHI, December 4: Organising Committee Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi sustained its process of engaging the citizens of Delhi by launching the Delhi United, a programme aimed at recruiting 30,000 volunteers to be held in various areas during the Games next year, at its headquarters on Friday, the eve of the International Volunteer Day.
Organising Committee Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi Chairman Mr. Suresh Kalmadi, MP, who launched Delhi United along with Ms. Sindhushree Khullar, Secretary, Ministry of Sports, said the army of selfless and dedicated volunteers would be the real face of the Games next year. “In fact, the volunteers will be the backbone of the Games, we depend on you” he said.
“I am confident that our volunteers would contribute immensely towards ensuring that we host a great Games next year,” he said. “My confidence stems from the fact that the 166 volunteers who helped us during the Commonwealth Games Federation General Assembly did a great job and passed the test with flying colours. All CGAs said that they had done a great job.”
To facilitate easy registration of the volunteers, the Chairman, Organising Committee also launched a special interactive web portal (www.cwgdelhi2010.org/delhiunited).
