Red Cross-Abra orients board of director nominees

By Ginalyn B. Brioso,

BANGUED, Abra, June 3 (PIA) — The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) – Abra Chapter convened all its nominees for the Board of Directors (BOD) in an orientation at the Provincial Capitol on May 29 in preparation for their elections and in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Red Cross.

In the orientation, Leonilo Lagasca II, head of the International Humanitarian Law Office of the PRC national headquarters, discussed the services rendered by the PRC.

He also highlighted the relevance of and the role of the members of the Board in the policy formulation and implementation of the various programs and services of the PRC such as disaster management, voluntary blood donation, relief and emergency response, health and safety services, and the youth development program.

Lagasca also discussed the rules and functions of the Board particularly in the promulgation of policies established by the National Headquarters; deliberation of the chapter’s budget; guiding the chapter administration in accomplishing objectives; approval of the annual report on the activities and financial condition of the chapter; monitoring the operations of the chapter and recommending improvements; and fund generation, which are necessary in the delivery of PRC services.

Manuel James Laygo, Officer-in-Charge of the PRC-Abra Chapter said that the election of the PRC Board of Directors will be held on June 13, 2013 at the Abra Provincial Capitol Social Hall.

Laygo said that while there are around 500 chapter members now, only accredited official delegates will be allowed to vote and proxies are not allowed to vote except the registered alternate delegate.

There are around 15 nominees for the new set of BOD from various offices, professional, and business organizations in the province which were initially chosen by the Nominations Committee chaired by Decimia Cabang of the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office.

Laygo appeals to the future members of the BOD to help restore PRC-Abra in terms of financial capability as the chapter hardly survive with the meager amount of funds they have generated in the last two years.

He said the PRC-Abra is aiming for at least P2M this year in order to deliver the needed services to the people of Abra especially in times of emergencies. (JDP/GB-PIA CAR, Abra)#

  2. Mabuti naman po kung i activate ang Philippine National Red Cross sa Abra. Malaki din ang maitutulong ng Red Cross sa atin lalo na sa mga katulad naming mahihrap and during disasters. Matagal na yatang naging in active ang PRC-Abra chapter mula nung nag kandidato si Maam Lovelyn Domes ag. We were with her during her time and we’ve been helping a lot of people. Good luck PRC- Abra chapter.In this regard makakatulong din sa mga youth to become aware of their environment lalo na kung magiging volunteer sila sa mga activities ng PRC.
