BRITISH RED CROSS WEEK MAY 4th – 9th, 2021…

British Red Cross Week May 4th-9th – The BRC have made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone all planned public collections activity this year.

This comes after carefully considering the risks of Covid-19 (coronavirus) on the health, safety and wellbeing of our amazing volunteer collectors and generous donors.

However you can still help raise awareness by becoming a virtual bucket shaker means that you can still collect donations, bring your community together and raise vital funds for people in crisis.

The principles in action today

A flash of hope

Around the world, whenever a humanitarian crisis occurs, the Red Cross or Red Crescent is always one of the first organisations on the scene thanks to their kind volunteers.

Today, the challenges posed by an unpredictable and often changing global landscape have never been greater. But their principles still ring true.

They still guide us through adversity. They still command respect. They still make the Red Cross unique.

Protection at all costs

They recognise they are only able to work in conflict zones such as Yemen, Syria and South Sudan because they are neutral, impartial and independent, and because the red cross and red crescent emblems reflect these principles.

This is why it is important they celebrate the principles and make as much noise as possible about why they matter.

Principles in action project

Their Principles in action project explores how the fundamental principles help the Red Cross across the world.

Using real-life examples, the project shows how the principles help staff and volunteers gain access to, and help, people in need.

From hiring a wheelchair or dealing with loneliness, to adjusting to life in a new country – the Red Cross are there when you need them. Connecting human kindness with human crisis.
