Letter From Boris Michel, Head of Operations for North and West Africa

 Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, who ruled Libya from 1969 until August this year, was killed on 20 October 2011. His death was announced after transitional forces claimed control of Sirte, the Colonel's birthplace, following weeks of fierce fighting. Libya's transitional authorities have since declared national liberation before a jubilant crowd in Benghazi, where the revolt against Colonel Gaddafi began.

Helping People in Need

 

"HELPING PEOPLE IN NEED"

Being a Red Cross volunteer pretty much sums this phrase up. As Malta Red Cross Volunteers we are consistently trained to give First Aid assistance in several situations that one may encounter in his daily life - some of which can truly save a life.  Apart from being certified by the Malta Red Cross as a Basic First Aider, we also have weekly training sessions at our Operations centre in Pembroke so as to keep our skills up to date, and feel confident whilst on First Aid Posts. We also participate in National Training Activities such as different disaster simulations in conjunction with the Civil Protection Department and the National Health Authorities.  

 
I have often been involved in aiding people during ambulance service, but recently whilst not on duty I was able to help a Mater Dei emergency unit on a road traffic accident, and I reconfirmed once again that through volunteering you get back much more than you give.
