The Red Cross, led by Abbas Gullet as the Secretary General and The President as the Patron has proven to be the most reliable disaster management unit. Performing way better than our very own government. One would be forgiven to think Red Cross is a government arm.

Kenya Red Cross Society (KRCS) is a voluntary organisation operating through a network of 8 regions and 64 branches countrywide. The Society has more than 70,000 volunteers and members who assist in implementing activities at the headquarters as well as regional and branch levels.

Their Vision is to be the most effective, most trusted and self-sustaining humanitarian organisation in Kenya while their Mission is to work with vigor and compassion through networks and with communities to prevent and alleviate human suffering and save lives of the most vulnerable.

Red Cross Core Values are:

* Commitment
* Accountability
* Service To Humanity
* Trust

Their Value Preposition which is so true for them is:

Always There

Red Cross Pillars are:

* Operational Excellence
* Investing in Our People
