“Red Cross Regional Manager, Janelle Cazaubon, also answered questions and provided a comprehensive overview of Red Cross today and the aims and achievements of local branches.”

“Another Guest Speaker, Norma Watson gave an interesting and emotional talk on her contact with the Fred Hollows Foundation and her trip to Kathmandu to witness the life changing work done there by the foundation .”
