Words of the President
“There is no higher calling than when a person gives his or her own
knowledge, skills, time or resources to someone in need of help or
comfort. This is the fundamental principle of volunteerism. Volunteering
is at the heart of community-building. It promotes trust and reciprocity. It
encourages good citizenship and provides people with an environment
where they can learn the responsibilities of community and civic
involvement.”
-Tadateru Konoe
President of the International Federation of Red
Cross and Red Crescent Societies

Testimonials
I’ve always wanted to volunteer for an
organization, especially the Red Cross. It’s a
well-known organization all around the
world for its implication in serving people.
That’s my main motivation. I’ve always
wanted to serve my community as well.
Mahimpundu Ange Raissa
First Aid Services Team
I’m very proud of what it stands for. I believe
in the Fundamental Principles that the Red
Cross stands for and I just think it’s a
fantastic organization to volunteer with.
Peter McGuinness
Disaster Management
The reason I like to volunteer is I like
to help out other people and I also
like to make a difference. The
opportunity that I saw with the Red
Cross was that it would allow me to
help out people, give back and make
a difference. And I find that I’ve
done that with the Red Cross.
