The URCS was recognised by an "Act of Parliament in 1964" and admitted as a member of International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent in 1965. The National Society has over 350,000 registered members with one and half million beneficiaries of its interventions. URCS works through 51 Branch Offices covering the whole of Uganda.
