During the two day North Malaita Constituency Leaders Consultative Workshop from November 27-18 in Malu'u, TARD has pledged the small contribution after hearing the difficulties that the organizing committee have faced in terms securing funds to successfully organize the event next month. The donation was hand delivered to the MHC Organizing Committee Chairman and President of the To'abaita Council of Chiefs, Mr David Dauta, in the presence of Malu'u Area Health Center staff and committee nembers on Saturday December 2 2006.
In thanking TARD, Mr Dauta conveyed the organizing committee's appreciation on behalf of the rural communities in North Malaita and the To'abaita council of chiefs for such assistance especially from students who have a heart for their rural people.
"We are thankful towards TARD for this SI$350 assistance as it is the first donation that the organizing committee will be receiving from anybody. We do not expect students who have no jobs or salary to do such a thing, as witnessed from our past scholars. But we are grateful that you students have realized that our rural areas and clinics is where our life begins", said Mr Dauta.
The Malu'u Health Awareness Show is scheduled to take place from January 10-12 at the Malu'u Area Health Center compound. It is aimed at awaring the public and rural communities from Arao to Ata'a of the services that provided at the various clinics in North Malaita, and outlining the importance of health and good sanitation. The show will be filled with health related education talks, skits, and cultural performances. TARD will also be represented by some of its members throughout the show early next month.
