Volunteers and staff are con­fident that the people of Va­nua Levu will contribute abundantly to the national street appeal of the Fiji Red Cross Soci­ety in Labasa.

The volunteers and supporters of the organisation have been proudly wearing the Fiji Red Cross emblem and giving out stickers to those giving donations to their street appeals.

Labasa Branch President Senimi­li Raura said she was pleased with the public response.

“People have come out in num­bers to give generously including the street dwellers,” Ms Raura said.

“The Society needs your good help to protect those who need it the most to embrace the forgotten, nurse the hurt, help the vulner­able, comfort those suffering.”

Ms Raura said the funds collected would enable the society to get to remote places in the country to help build resilience for communities.

“All the money that will be collect­ed from this appeal will go towards supporting the daily operations of the Society together with helping our team who respond during dis­asters,” she said.

She also said donations collected would be counted and announced to the public later.

The week long appeal started yes­terday in all its 16 branches.

The Fiji Red Cross Society collect­ed about $15K during their annual national appeal last year.
