History of the Day
An international commission presented the Red Cross as an important contribution to peace in the 14th International Conference of the Red Cross after the First World War. The 15th International Conference in Tokyo in 1934 approved the principles of the Red Cross for use throughout the world and throughout different regions.
In the “LORCS”, the General Assembly of the International Federation of Red Cross Societies (IFRC) requested the possibility of an annual celebration. In 1949, the proposal to celebrate the World Red Cross was adopted. It became officially known as “World Red Cross Day and Red Crescent Day” in 1984.
The International Committee of the Red Cross and its members organize various programs and events to facilitate and promote their humanitarian activities.
They even motivate people to protect their lives and care for the dignity of the victims. This day is celebrated by all departments of the Red Cross to help those affected by floods, earthquakes, and natural disasters and to protect their lives from emergencies.
