The Anambra State Chapter of the Nigerian Red Cross Society is facing a severe shortage of life-saving equipment, vehicles, and drugs necessary for responding to emergencies as the first responder, according to the organization’s Chairman, Professor Peter Katchy.

Speaking at the Nigerian Red Cross Society Headquarters in Amawbia-Awka on Monday, Katchy emphasized the Society’s commitment to saving lives during emergencies through intervention measures, disaster preparedness, and mitigation, as well as rapid response to the most vulnerable populations.

Katchy listed several emergency situations where the society could provide assistance, including vehicular accidents, fire and flood disasters, communal and religious conflicts, political violence, kidnap trauma, epidemic disease outbreaks, internal displacements, and herdsmen invasions.

However, he noted that the society requires support and donations from the government of Governor Soludo and the private sector to operate more effectively and efficiently.

Katchy also urged Nigerians to participate in efforts to restore peace, stability, and progress in the country. He called on the federal government to establish a Federal Ministry of National Reconciliation, which would promote peaceful co-existence, national rebirth, values, and patriotism.

Meanwhile, the Emeritus Chairman of the Society, Justice Paul Obidigwe, described this year’s celebration theme, “To Highlight The Universal, Human And Diverse Aspects Of The Red Cross Movement,” as appropriate. He stressed the need to create an enabling environment for achieving global security and safety.

Additionally, the State Secretary of the Red Cross, Engr. Kingsley Okoye, lauded Professor Katchy’s effective leadership of the Red Cross Society in the state, noting that his achievements and performances have earned recognition across the country, which other chapters have been striving to emulate.
