This milestone year not only marked the organization’s enduring commitment to humanitarian service but also showcased the impactful strides achieved through visionary leadership.

National President Sala Toganivalu-Lesuma, with her wealth of experience and commitment to humanitarian causes, steered the organization with unwavering dedication.

Director General Ragigia Dawai, a driving force behind the scenes, brought a dynamic and strategic approach to her role. Her intentional leadership style facilitated innovative solutions and ensured the alignment of organizational objectives with the ever-evolving needs of the community.

The 50th anniversary celebration serves as a testament to the pivotal role that women have played in shaping the destiny of the Fiji Red Cross Society. Sala Toganivalu-Lesuma and Ragigia Dawai exemplify the strength, resilience, and compassion that characterize women in leadership roles.

Their collaborative efforts not only navigated the organization through challenges but also paved the way for new opportunities. The intentional emphasis on diversity and inclusion fostered an environment where every voice was heard, and every perspective valued.
