He added that, “The Red Crescent movement at Serian Chapter is just like a computer.

As the Chapter’s chairman I play the role like the hardware of a computer to provide facilities for training and other activities. While the officers/teachers are just like the software to run the programmes and activities to equip the members with various skills and knowledge such as first aid knowledge and others. He hoped that the officers and members would make full use of the headquarters to conduct training and other activities.

The chairperson of the course, Phang Nyuk Lan expressed her gratitude to all the teachers-incharge, the organising committee and assistants who were the VAD (Voluntary Aid Detachment) and youth members of SMK Serian and all the participants for their active participation and cooperation to make the course a success.

She added that this year the response was good as all the 10 youth units in Serian Chapter participated in the course. She hoped the participants would share the knowledge and experiences they gained from the course with their friends when they returned to their units.

The participants were also told that they would be registered for the Red Crescent First Round Mass Exam. All of them would be called back to the headquarters in the next three months for the centralised exam. At the end of the course, the participants were presented with certificates of attendance.
