Red Cross Marks Anniversary

Fiji Red Cross Society (FRCS) celebrated its 50th Anniversary of the adoption of the fundamental principle last Friday in Suva.

The fundamental principle guides and governs the type of work carried out by Red Cross workers and volunteers.

Society president Cathy Wong reminded the volunteers of the important roles they play in their work. “You should be neutral at all times. You have to live by your principles on a daily basis. The fundamental principle is the humanitarian, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary services, unity, universality in you must be enshrined in you,” Mrs Wong.

She reminded volunteers of the need to be impartial.

“Build an identity based on humanitarian. It needs to come from the inner side of you all. We have to be responsible and be considerate about the work we conduct. You do not only work as a volunteer during disaster, but in times of any situation.”

FRCS resource development manager, Dianne Reddy said they had 15 active volunteers in each branch across the country who had been trained to help people during emergencies.

“Our volunteers have the passion to work. We are recognised of the quality work we do. The anniversary marked today, is very special,” Mrs Reddy said.
