Red Cross honours Chinese businessman

Nthatuoa Koeshe

CHINESE businessman, Chan Lee was on Friday crowned the Lesotho Red Cross Society’s (LSRC) corporate supporter of the year.

Dr Lee was given his certificate at a point of entry meeting that was held in Maseru. A point of entry meeting is a session that the LRCS holds with individuals and organisations to update them about the organisation’s work in the country to cultivate donors.

The meeting was attended by several Chinese business people who were urged to partner with the Red Cross.

Dr Lee, who has partnered with the LRCS since 2017, appealed to more Chinese businesses to give back to the communities which host their businesses.

“We invest in the country and create job opportunities for Basotho and giving back to the community should be one of our strongest areas of focus,” Dr Lee said.

Speaking at the meeting minister in the Prime Minister’s office, Temeki Tšolo, advised the Chinese business community to assist the LRCS wherever possible as an indirect way of assisting the government.

He commended the LRCS for the tremendous work that it has undertaken since its establishment in November 1967 in the country.

“I am aware of the work which the Chinese have done in the country. However, following His Majesty King Letsie III’s call for support for the humanitarian agenda in Lesotho, I encourage the Chinese community to work together with the LRCS,” Mr Tšolo said.

LRCS president Silase Mosuhle also commended the Chinese business community for its sterling work in assisting the organisation. He however, urged more business people to emulate Dr Lee’s work.

“Red cross needs support to carry out its mandate and we would like to assist vulnerable communities through cooperation with the Chinese people,” Mr Mosuhle said.
