Tugeda fo Helti Komiuniti team still in the Weathercoast

The Solomon Islands Red Cross Tugeda fo Helti Komiuniti (THK) spends three weeks in the Weathercoast area doing health promotion activities, that to begin the three-years health project in Weathercoast and Lau Lagoon.

According to the team leader, Mr. Clement Manuri, the THK group (which consists of staff and volunteers from both Auki and Guadalcanal branches) will return to Honiara mid next week , and then will be heading to Lau Lagoon to begin working with the targeted communities on a health project.

To its advantage, some of the volunteers actually from the communities the THK project is implemented in.
By this in long-run, the Red Cross believes will have positive impacts in the communities it works with.

"Our partcipitory approach in working with the Weathercoast and Lau Lagoon communities is to involve the members and having the feeling of ownership of this initiative in long term", he said.
