The day also honours all volunteers who have made an unprecedented contribution to people in distress or emergency.




The Red Cross owns the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, which has societies in 186 member countries.

There are currently 189 national Red Cross and Red Crescent societies around the world, employing more than 97 million people and volunteers.

The organization visited their website and wrote: “On the occasion of the World Red Cross and Red Crescent World Day and in 2019, we will celebrate the strength and scope of our global network, as well as the contribution of our staff and 11.7 million active volunteers on #Amour.”

This day is celebrated every year to relieve people’s suffering and to give them a dignified life. It is celebrated by Red Cross organizations around the world, helping people with independence, humanity, impartiality, universality, unity and neutrality – basic principles of organization.

History of the World Red Cross Day 2020

After the First World War, the Red Cross was presented by an international commission at the 14th International Conference of the Red Cross as an important contribution to peace. In 1934, the principles of the Red Cross were presented and approved at the 15th International Conference in Tokyo, to be used throughout the world and in various regions.

The possibility of an annual celebration was requested at the “LORCS” by the General Assembly of the International Federation of Red Cross Societies (IFRC). Two years later, on 8 May 1948, the proposal for the annual celebration of the World Red Cross was adopted. In 1984, it was officially named the “World Red Cross Day and Red Crescent”.




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.

World Cross Day celebrates the survival of people affected by many kinds of natural disasters and other problems that make life difficult. It is very important that people perform many tasks, especially to handle things properly.

World Cross Day is celebrated to give people much more relief and harmony, resulting from the many disasters that are taking place in many countries in defence of their rights. The World Red Cross Day is also being used to help a large number of people reduce their epidemic mortality rates.

The World Red Cross Day serves to address residents of vulnerable areas to ensure safety in emergencies and forces many public services, communities and members to help in many areas of health disasters and many endangered conditions. This allows people to restore respect for their better work administration in many places. The Geneva Conventions are used to solve the problems of nations in war.

The World Cross Day is used to seek the help of doctors or nurses when the army is injured in a war. He finds people who lack war and treats prisoners during wartime. It allows people to take care of everyone wounded in the war.



It also saves people from the war. The World Red Cross Day enables people to receive all kinds of facilities and services in terms of security in different places, regardless of problems and without the financial support of the inhabitants.

There are many new branches, many of which are new volunteers. The Rath Yatra movement organizes many types of local programs to demonstrate the activities of the Red Cross.

There are many new volunteers involved in running the representatives of the state branches and the director of the branches. This volunteer has been working for nearly 60 hours for many years, the so-called volunteer hours of the subject, to which the volunteers delegate the task.

This volunteer motivates many young people of the generation to help young people in many of the worst situations, such as floods, earthquakes, thalassemia, hurricanes and many other problems.

Many volunteers organize blood donation and anaemia camps so that people can familiarize themselves with many activities. Volunteers organize many of the camps where people can learn whenever they need to be informed about the activities they want to do for their development activities.

    I want to thank all volunteers throughout the world for their passion and commitment to save lives wherever they are. Red Cross is a very special organisation, it touched my heart and changed my life with influence from the fundamental principles which are very powerful and influential in changing mindsets when very well understood.

    Everything in Red Cross portrays the spirit of love and it is this love that brings joy to those who find it, hope that was never hoped for and the smiles that were never exposed.

    Happy Red Cross Red Crescent day to all of us in the Red Cross Red Cross Family…. ‘With each hand, we can make yet another big change in the lives of people around us’
