The German Red Cross provides essential humanitarian support worldwide for people affected by crisis situations. Whether in natural disasters or armed conflicts. There are many dire situations in which we support a national red cross or red crescent sister society ‑ our humanitarian assistance has many faces. Natural disasters such as storms, earthquakes or flooding cause severe suffering and require joint relief efforts by our international Red Cross/Red Crescent movement.
Epidemics and famines threaten lives especially of the most vulnerable people. Assisting them is an important task. In armed conflicts especially the civil population is suffering. This is where we can help together with our sister societies, for example, with medical care, emergency shelters and food. Very often we only have access to the most vulnerable because of our principles of neutrality and impartiality. And because of you and your donation.
