World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day

The Red Cross Day was celebrated for the first time throughout the world on 8 May 1948, the anniversary of the birth of Henry Dunant, the founder of the Red Cross. It subsequently changed names several times and in 1984 became " World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day ".
The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is the world’s largest humanitarian network. The Movement is neutral and impartial, and provides protection and assistance to people affected by disasters and conflicts.
The Movement is made up of nearly 100 million members, volunteers and supporters in 190 National Societies. It has three main components:
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC)
190 member Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
As partners, the different members of the Movement support communities in becoming stronger and safer through a variety of development projects and humanitarian activities. The Movement also works in cooperation with governments, donors and other aid organizations to assist vulnerable people around the world.
The ICRC, the Federation and the National Societies are independent bodies. Each has its own individual status and exercises no authority over the others.

Quotes & Wishes - After surviving the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia After surviving the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia

After surviving the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia, I found myself without food, water, shelter…the most basic needs required to survive. Suddenly my livelihood hinged on the one hope shared by all survivors, ’please let help be on the way.’ For me, that help came in the form of The Red Cross. When I saw their volunteers, I knew it meant safety, clean water, a meal…not just for me, but for thousands of other survivors too. The work they do is invaluable. They save lives. They reinstall hope. And, I’m honored to join them in their mission to do both.
