As the Secretary General, Ms. Gwendolyn Pang is responsible for the proper management, administration and operation of all the services and offices of the Philippine Red Cross (PRC).
Ms. Pang is a registered nurse by profession. She started her involvement in the Red Cross as a Red Cross Youth (RCY) volunteer, and became a regular staff right after her graduation. Since then, she has dedicated her time and talent to the organization, and has shown her ability to respond constructively to changing organizational demands.
As a former Director for Fundraising, she devised long-term programs and special projects to generate funds and ensure efficient PRC operations. She also professionalized the fundraising strategy of the PRC by coming up with a PRC fundraising roadmap, and initiating the donor and donation program and various innovative fundraising techniques.
She was PRC's first Deputy Secretary General—the executive officer next to Secretary General.
On the 15th of April 2009, the Board of Governors unanimously elected her as PRC's Secretary General. Now, she works assiduously in making sure that the Red Cross would maintain its reputation as the foremost humanitarian organization in the country.
