Red Cross Volunteers

Red Cross Volunteers

Red Cross Volunteers are engaged in youth programmes, first aid, ambulance services, mountain rescue, telephone help-lines, disaster management, support for refuges and internally displaced people, health campaigns, advocacy and a myriad of other services with the aim of improving the lives of the vulnerable in communities.

Volunteer work is different from paid work. Volunteering has it's own unique qualities:

 

  • Volunteers have a strong personal motivation
  • Volunteers work part-timeMost people only volunteer a few hours each week. Therefore, volunteering can be combined with any occupation and can continue for many years.
  • Red Cross Volunteers are localThey are part of the community. Volunteers know the needs and resources in the community, because they are already there.
