World Vision helped to kick off the Commonwealth Queens Baton relay in the capital of Solomon Islands, yesterday together with UNICEF. The Honiara leg of the relay began outside of the capital at Kakabona beach where a number of children from a World Vision Area Program community, Lord Howe community, gathered together to sing with World Vision staff about improving health and sanitation around Honiara. Following the performance the children passed the baton over to officials and the relay commenced.
