Two more Red Cross offices will open soon in the North­ern Division.

The opening of the branch offices in Nabouwalu and Rabi is part of the $1.15 million project funded by the Australian government.

Fiji Red Cross director-general Filipe Nainoca says the new offic­es in the division will boost their work, presence and reach in the division.

“For the Fiji Red Cross, this pro­ject has built four offices through­out the Northern division (in Labasa, Savusavu, Nabouwalu and Rabi) and has comprehen­sively changed our infrastructure, capacity and response capabil­ity throughout the Northern Divi­sion,” Mr Nainoca said.

“Even more exciting for us is that this project does not stand alone. It is part of an integrated develop­ment approach that we are doing with our programmes.

“This will enable us to better carry out our programmes by co­ordinating the work of our branch executives and programme manag­ers increasing the efficiency of im­plementing our vision of building a resilient Fiji by building resil­ient communities,” he said.
