During this seminar we become aware about red cross programme.
The Indian Red Cross’s programmes are grouped into four main core areas:
- Promoting humanitarian principles and values;
- Disaster response;
- Disaster preparedness; and
and Care in the Community.
Red Cross promotes the Humanitarian values, which encourage respect for other human beings and a willingness to work together to find solutions to problems.
Disaster response continues to represent the largest portion of IRCS work, with assistance to millions of people annually ranging from refugees to victims of natural disasters.
These aim to make Red Cross Societies and communities more aware of the risks they face, how to reduce their vulnerability, and how to cope when disaster strikes.
Too many people die as a result of no access to even the most basic health services and elementary health education. Health and community care has become a cornerstone of humanitarian assistance, and accounts for a large part of Red Cross spending. Through these programmes, the Red Cross aims to enable communities to reduce their vulnerability to disease, and prepare for and respond to public health crises.
Other Major activities includes : hospital services, blood bank, HIV/AIDS programmes, home for disabled servicemen ,vocational training centers, tracing activities, maternity , child and family welfare, nursing, junior red cross activities, preparedness and prevention of communicable & infectious diseases, relief operations in fire, railway & other accidents and events .
Promoting Fundamental Principles and Humanitarian Values
The International Committees of the Red Cross and National Societies have a consistent and inspirational approach to promoting humanitarian values and the seven Fundamental Principles of the Red Cross and Red Crescent movement.
The aim is to influence the behaviour of the people we work with, through a better understanding of Fundamental Principles and humanitarian values.
