The elections were held on Saturday at the Red Cross headquarters at Providence during the branch’s general assembly.

Mr Antoine thanked all Red Cross members for their hard work and continued support. He pledged to ensure continuity of the organisation’s actions which include emergency response, first aid delivery, ambulance service, blood donation as well as training.

Citing member commitment as the main challenge faced by the organisation, he pledged to make the issue his utmost priority in order to enhance volunteer involvement which will help the most vulnerable members of society.

The new committee also comprises Berthilde Belle (vice-chairperson), Clita Milihius (secretary), May-Paule Lepathy (treasurer), Rania Asba (youth representative) and Mirenda Bolo, Joseph Didon and Nicholas Jumaye as ordinary members.

Red Cross society of Seychelles’ secretary general Colette Servina also thanked the outgoing committee and had a word of encouragement for the new team, wishing them success in their task.

As a gesture of appreciation, Mrs Servina presented certificates to the departing members. Annouska Sinon, Christina Olivia and Jimmy Moustache were the certificate recipients who had not stood for re-election.

Added to its executive committee, the Red Cross Society of Seychelles has in its structure a branch on Mahé and one on Praslin.
