About Sierra Leone Red Cross Society
The Sierra Leone Red Cross Society (SLRCS) traces its beginnings to an influenza pandemic (also called the ‘Spanish Lady’) that gripped the world in 1918. Sierra Leone was badly affected by this plague, which killed hundreds of Sierra Leoneans.
“A nationwide Society empowered by the difference we make in the lives of vulnerable communities in partnership with our stakeholders. A respected steward of funds, providing timely and targeted preventive and responsive services in support of:
1. Respect for the human being
2. A healthy Society
3. Alleviation of suffering and
4. The promotion of the Fundamental Principles of the Red Cross Movement.”
A new Secretary General has just been appointed for the Society, Mr. Kpawuru Sandy.
