This year’s (2016) theme was “Everywhere for everyone” which directly relates to the work Red Cross does with inclusive service to all everywhere in the World. Uganda Red Cross this time celebrated the Red Cross day on Wednesday 11th May 2016. This time round, the day was celebrated in a different way.

As usual, all the 51 URCS Branches actively engage in several activities in commemoration of the day.
