At Belgian Red Cross-Flanders, we leave nothing to chance. We firmly take control of our future too. Over the past few months, we have been hard at work developing an ambitious new five-year plan. It needs to be a worthy successor to Pledge 2015, our previous policy plan.
This major strategic exercise relied on the support of hundreds of people: not just our own volunteers and staff members, but also external experts, government representatives, people from other voluntary organizations, and many more. We would like to thank them all very much for their enthusiastic efforts and the vital contribution they have made.
The result of all that brainwork is Strategy 2020. Everyone helps. Our new baseline, ‘Helps people help’, which we launched in 2015, is a great foundation for building our future. As you read this brochure, you will soon notice that selfreliance is the common thread running through everything we do.
