report American Red Cross

For Christopher Odeke, a subsistence farmer from rural eastern Uganda, one day last December marks the beginning of a new adventure: his first airplane trip.

As a Uganda Red Cross volunteer, Christopher was travelling to the Binga District in northwest Zimbabwe. With the support of the American Red Cross and the Zimbabwe Red Cross, his job was to train the Disaster Management Committee (DMC) of the village Siachalaba on disaster risk reduction in two projects that were first developed in villages of Uganda.
