8 Maiu, today is World Red Cross Day – a day celebrated across the world in honour of Red Cross founding father, Henri Dunant who was born in 1828!  – CVTL uses this important day to lets us give thanks to all the staff and volunteers across our country and the world – working for the vulnerable and humanity.   

CVTL celebrated the day with inspiring speeches from our CVTL President Mana Madalena, IFRC – Mana Francisca and ICRC Country Representative – Maun Joao. Mana Madalena talked about the importance of working together with the community as well as the Government – for us to build a stronger country.

CVTL together with the National Hospital – set up a temporary blood donation centre in NHQ – as we know Blood is Life! There are many planned activities across the country but in several Districts they had to be postponed due to heavy rain.
