Bau native Evia Cirivakabola was one of the 30 participants who received awards at the end of the two-day Fiji Red Cross national council meeting in Suva.

The 27-year-old of Ovea Village was the recipient of the National Youth volunteer award for 2017 at the national awards night held at the Bergengren Inn on Friday night.

Ms Cirivakabola, who resides in Vatukoula is a representative of the Fiji Red Cross Tavua branch and believes voluntary work would only be productive when it was a choice of the individual.

“Joining the Fiji Red Cross should come within one’s heart not by influence of friends,” said Ms Cirivakabola.

She said she first signed up as a volunteer with Fiji Red Cross in 2012 and never turned back.

She said the voluntary response enabled her to visit places where she had never been before and meet people of different races.

She said youths nowadays did not like voluntary endeavors because it’s not a paid job.

But she believed it was about helping others during disasters and in times of need.

“I thank my family for supporting me all this while financially, and whenever I tell them that I’m going out for a volunteer work, they will always release me with a good heart,” she said.
