AGUSAN DEL SUR, March 6 (PIA) -- The Philippine Red Cross Agusan del Sur Chapter (PRC-AdS) presented their 2011 accomplishment report on social services, volunteer services and recruitment of Red Cross Youth council organization and membership.
PRC-AdS administrator Christyll Basan showed from the report that her office targeted to recruit 100 members per quarter or a total of 400 for 2011. However, they recruited 789 members instead.
For the mobilization on service delivery, the same target of 400 was presented but 748 was recorded, indicating a 187 percent accomplishment.
Although regular meetings with the board of directors were not met having only three out of targeted eight meetings, committee meetings were done, making a record of 125 percent.
Basan said it is more effective to have frequent committee meetings because it is more focused and issues can be discussed thoroughly for better understanding and results.
On welfare assistance like regular guidance and counseling, the chapter failed to reach its goal and landed only 56 percent of its 60 target. But guidance counseling done during disaster registered 900 percent having a target of only three.
Organizing the Red Cross Youth (RCY) council and membership in the junior level registered 143 percent with 1,620 recruits against the target of 1,050, while 255 percent was also recorded in the senior RCY level having a target of 1,050 for 2011 but recruited 2,680.
“Because of calamities we encountered last year, our information and education campaign targets were not met having conducted only one class with 44 students for the NSTP classes. But we also exceeded in our promotion events like symposium, film showing, pep talks and others having conducted seven interpersonal communication against our target of only two with 172 attendees against the target of 150,” Basan said.
