URCS on a move towards innovation: leaving nobody behind

This season brings glad tidings to all communities around us. I am glad to share this message with you as we all celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. As many of you break off for Christmas, Uganda Red Cross staff and Volunteers are like front line soldiers. They will continue offering humanitarian services to the people we serve. Some staff are on standby- and others are available to respond to any call where the public needs our services. To us, this is the true meaning of Christmas, sharing our love with those in need. Thank you for walking the year 2018 with us. As we crown it, we take time to reflect on the key successes we achieved and the challenges we encountered as we pursued the tasks we set out to accomplish, as an institution by end of the year.

On behalf of the entire Uganda Red Cross team, I thank the staff, Volunteers, and members for the hard work, team spirit and concerted efforts put in to ensure that we deliver on our humanitarian mandate. I also thank our dear partners and donors for trusting Uganda Red Cross with your resources.

We have walked a great year of recovery with your support and great cheer! We have been able to deliver on the key mandates of the National society through your committed support. Thank you and may the collaboration and partnership spirit grow even stronger in 2019. 2019 is going to be unique in many ways as we are going to shift our focus towards improving innovative ways to ensure sustainable funding. We are well positioned, with our partners, to come up with new and improved systems in detection of disasters and outbreaks before they happen. We have devised means to rely on real time alerts that are low-cost, low- resource and adaptable. We have already rolled this out in our Community epidemic and pandemic preparedness program in the highly risky Ebola targeted districts; Bundibugyo, Kabarole, Kanungu, Ntoroko, Bunyangabu and so on.

The New Year will also center on further strengthening of what makes us unique in our work, Volunteers. We continue to build capacity for our volunteers and train them in various skills and knowledge needed for them to be able to sufficiently deliver in their respective capacities.We will also further equip our 51 branches across the country with the capacity they need and ensure growth and impact is felt in society.
