Philippine Red Cross awards 80 personnel


EIGHTY staff from different chapters of the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) in Visayas were honored for their service to the humanitarian organization.

Some of the awardees have been working for 30 years already. Others were recognized even if they are still new in the PRC, some of whom joined the organization four years ago.

The awardees’ recognition—held at Cordova Home Village in Cordova town, Cebu on July 10, 2019—was part of the PRC’s 72nd founding anniversary’s activities. The PRC Lapu-Lapu-Cordova Chapter hosted the event.

PRC chairman and chief executive officer, Sen. Richard Gordon, failed to attend the event due to his hectic schedule.

Four members of the PRC’s board attended. They are governors Jay Jalandoni, Joy Roble and Jorge Lim, and secretary general Elizabeth Zavalla.

The PRC officials handed the recognition tokens and certificates to the awardees.

The Department of Education Lapu-Lapu City Division provided a cultural dance presentation that was performed by Pajo National High School students, who are also youth volunteers of the PRC.

Zavalla expressed her gratitude to the awardees for their dedication and love in the service of saving lives.

The PRC had donated hundreds of rescue equipment and vehicles, and built hundreds of resilient houses for the victims of calamities.
