Branches and regions support too

Solidarity between Red Cross Societies worldwide is one of the fundamental principles of our organization.

In 2012, 28 Red Cross branches and two Red Cross regions supported a structural project led by Belgian Red Cross-Flanders. In this way, we not only generate financial support for our projects in the South but we also strengthen the international ties between Red Cross volunteers. Branches that sign up for a branch or regional project receive regular updates about the project. They can also request a talk by a Red Cross employee who has visited the project. In 2012, 21 branches organized information evenings of this kind.
