The business of helping others

Red Cross NSW executive director Lewis Kaplan, regional manager Vahideh Hosseini and fundraising co-ordinator Scott Krueger at a special morning tea held last week to thank local Red Cross supporters.

The Australian Red Cross emblem means Do Not Shoot a universal message that allows the Red Cross to enter war zones impartially and do the vital emergency work that needs to be done.

There are also many places, like the Northern Rivers, where there may not be a war but there are still thousands of volunteers providing services to the local community as well as being prepared should a disaster or emergency strike.

One of the main ingredients in keeping these services going is the support from local businesses, who were thanked with a special morning tea at the local Red Cross branch in Lismore last week.

The Red Cross is a fantastic organisation that holds a very special place in Australia, said NSW Red Cross executive director, Lewis Kaplan, who flew up from Sydney to take part in the function. Our mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable people and strengthen the spirit of humanity.
