AUKI Red Cross branch has a new board chairman and a new committee for 2018.
The newly elected chairman is Mr Robert Wale the deputy provincial secretary of Malaita province.
He was elected during the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Wednesday along with new board members for 2018.
Speaking to Island Sun Auki after the AGM, Mr Wale said the betterness of any organisation or group depends on cooperation, dedication and commitment.
He appeals to all volunteers to work together with the newly elected committee and the branch officer for the future activities and programmes of Solomon Islands Red Cross.
Wale also told the volunteers yesterday that the Malaita provincial government will be looking at possible ways to assist the work of Red Cross in the province.
The Auki branch and its board committee will also work closely with the Red Cross headquarter.
“One of our priorities is to capture more volunteers to join Red Cross and to set the office into a new phase.
“We will be looking at building up good relationship with the other NGO’s and the other stakeholders in partnership through our activities.”
