Volunteering: The Heartbeat of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement!

At the core of the Red Cross and Red Crescent movement lies the invaluable spirit of volunteering. Volunteers are the lifeblood of every facet of the national society’s endeavors. Presently, a staggering count of over 48,000 volunteers are enlisted across the nation, actively engaging in diverse humanitarian pursuits.

These selfless volunteers play an integral role in our broad spectrum of activities, spanning food security, disaster preparedness and response, health initiatives, HIV/AIDS prevention and control, and the propagation of essential humanitarian values. Through seamless collaboration between our dedicated volunteers and diligent staff, we come together to save lives and extend assistance to countless individuals in need year after year. Furthermore, our volunteers actively contribute to fundraising efforts, ensuring the financial support necessary for our critical services.

Embodying the very essence of altruism, our volunteers embody the ethos of the movement. Their commitment resonates with our mission to alleviate suffering and foster positive change in our communities. We salute these unsung heroes whose unwavering dedication forms the cornerstone of our endeavors.

Join us in acknowledging the tremendous impact of volunteering within the Red Cross and Red Crescent movement. Together, we make a difference that echoes across lives and generations.
