World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day: May 8, 2018

Today, on the occasion of World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day, the International Red Cross Red Crescent Movement partners in Nepal are joining a global celebration of the work and bravery of Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers, and the diverse humanitarian services they offer in communities everywhere. Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers are as diverse as the life-saving services they provide through 190 National Societies. 

Movement Parners in Nepal issued a joint statement today and said- Our volunteers live in the communities they support, from the smallest and most remote villages to the largest cities. Our services are tailored for local needs and delivered in local languages. Today, we come together to thank the Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers who give their time and expertise here in Nepal and all over the world.

The statement read- Every year, around the world, the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement supports millions of people affected by conflict, natural disasters and other emergencies, through its network of around 14 million volunteers and 450,000 staff. Around the world we reach more than 160 million people every year providing diverse and innovative range of services.
