Blood Donation: Through its 18,000 volunteers across the country, the Society continues to play a pivotal role in promoting safe and sustainable blood donation awareness to citizens through engagement of stakeholders and sensitizing communities about the benefits of giving out blood to those in need of it. They have also served as the longest non-remunerated blood donors nationwide.
CLIMATE CHANGE ACTION, DISASTER RISK REDUCTION
promotes activities that will contribute to climate change mitigation efforts and gender and protection aspects are considered in all the programme activities. Tree planting will have positive effects on climate change mitigation and the introduction of the energy-saving stoves will as well improve women’s health and reduce the need for firewood collection and use. This project builds on the BRIDGE- programme, it ensures that women and people with impairments are equally represented in the Community Based Disaster Management Committees (CBDMC) and that their interests are taken on board when strengthening or instituting Community-based Early Warning Systems (EWS) in the programme communities.
