Operation costs $160k, NGO seeks support

THE Fiji Red Cross Society accumulated a total operating cost of about $160,000 last year.

Speaking in Labasa at the weekend, society acting director Christopher Ho said although they managed to make returns of $40,000, it was not even half of the expenses they incurred. He said the society relied a lot on money from restricted income, meaning money that flowed from international donors.

"However, this restricted income had specific purposes and the operational cost of the society is not covered in this budget," he said.

"The other form of income for the society hinges on the unrestricted income which includes door knock appeals and other activities.

"Last year we managed to collect $40,000 in unrestricted income and this was not enough to cater for our operational cost."

Mr Ho appealed to members of the society to assist the organisation during its door knock appeal.
