Update: 2:00PM TODAY's International Volunteer Day (IVD) in Fiji will recognise and acknowledge the work of volunteers in nation building, community development and support to all sectors.

The theme for the IVD 2013  'Be Well, Volunteer Well' - re-enforces volunteerism as key players to realising and actively promoting well-being among all Fijians. 

IVD National Steering Committee chairman Neil Maharaj says the objective of this year's event is to highlight and acknowledge the contribution of volunteers on IVD through the Volunteer of the Year Awards, free health check-ups and a health walk event.
