The Zambia Red Cross Society has deployed over 1,300 Red Cross Volunteers to carry out Community sensitisation campaigns in Lusaka’s high density compounds of Mandevu, Chawama, Kanyama, George, Chipata and Chaisa at a total cost of about ZK1 Million.

The door to door Community campaigns and community announcements aim at encouraging parents and guardians to take their children aged between 9 months and 15 years to receive vaccination against Measles and Rubella from the nearest Health facility between 19th September and 24th September 2016.

“Our volunteers are spread out in various communities to encourage parents and guardians to take their children for vaccination. We want to ensure that Government reaches out to more children with Measles and Rubella vaccine.” says Abraham Geevarghese – Zambia Red Cross Society Secretary General.

 

The Zambia Red Cross is assisting Government to reach its over 6 million children target of Children vaccinated against Measles and Rubella.

The Zambia Red Cross Society is motivated to render this support because it is auxiliary to Government and is a member of Zambia’s Universal Child Immunization (UCI) Coordination Committee team.
