Ms. Ragigia Dawai, Director General of Fiji Red Cross Society, highlights the community-focused approach of the campaign, stating, “Although the Branch wins this money, it is eventually used to help further Branch activities targeted at building resilience and getting their communities disaster ready. So a win for the Branch is a win for the community. I would like to call upon people from different areas around Fiji to support their Red Cross Branches and to also participate in the activity.”
