Celebrating the World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day

Everywhere for everyone. Showing humanity amidst inhumanity. Red Cross volunteers and staff work tirelessly to prevent and alleviate human suffering and strive to build more resilient communities in the spirit of humanity. All these contributions and achievements are celebrated worldwide on the World Red Cross Red Crescent Day, the 8th May.

Together with the Tsiroanomandidy Red Cross volunteers, we took part in the celebration in the commune Ankandinondry Sakay, one hour away from Tsiroanomandidy. Through sensitisations and roleplays Red Cross volunteers promoted first aid, plague and health awareness to members of the local community. The community members also gained more knowledge about humanitarian principles and values and we once again got to experience the admirable effort of the Red Cross volunteers.
