SI Red Cross thanked TARD for linking the organization to cyberspace

Staff of the Solomon Islands Red Cross expressed their gratitude and thanks to the members of the To'abaita Authority for Research and Development (TARD) for voluntarily creating a webpage for the organisation.

One staff said to have the webpage within TARD’s website is a sign of development for Red Cross as it strives to spread its messages to the people about its role in Solomon Islands.

According to the local Red Cross Dissemination officer, Mr. Niniu Oligao, the having of a free web link came from a request he submitted earlier to the executive of TARD for the youth developed, youth led group to assist the local Red Cross with a webpage in the TARD’s web site.

He commented that to have the Red Cross information in the cyber space is another breakthrough for the humanitarian organization in sharing its information about its work and what it stands for.

“Red Cross is actively working with the vulnerable peoples of our communities to prepare for, and can respond to, when and where ever a disaster or disease outbreak.

“And by having this site, it will enable our community messages to reach our people living overseas and also those have access to PF Net in other parts of the country”, he added.
