The Red Cross Society of China (RCSC) visited the Ethiopian Red Cross Society (ERCS) and signed a one year cooperation agreement with ERCS last week.

A three year program was launched in 2013 to enhance cooperation between RCSC and ERCS that include grants and capacity building. Accordingly, a wide range of bilateral community development projects have delivered high quality services to the most vulnerable groups in Gamo Gofa zone of SNNPR.

ERCS Deputy Secretary General for Programs, Ato Hagos Gemechu said that, “the previous cooperation agreement performance was very successful; we have learned that we can continue our partnership with large scale cooperation with RCSC.”

In order to further implement the three year plan and expand the cooperation between both parties, the RCSC provided USD 100,000 to ERCS to support its program aimed at assisting the most vulnerable groups of people in Uba Debretsehay district in Gamo Gofa zone.

The project is supposed to improve the health and well-being of the community through provision of potable water supply as well as hygiene and sanitation education in communities and schools.
