These areas are where most community-based projects are being implemented. Concurrently, MRCS also has a countrywide network of regional/state and township branches with core services delivered through its brigade volunteers. Such core services/activities include blood services, First Aid training and provision, disaster response and humanitarian services.
MRCS relies on grants from national and international partners, donors and the Red Cross Movement. In addition, it accesses funding through its commercial income-generating activities, including trainings in first aid, its printing press, office rental and donation boxes, which are present in key locations throughout the country.
