2013 Year in Review

The American Red Cross brought help and hope to people in the U.S. and all over the world in the past year. From the devastating tornadoes that hit Oklahoma in May to Typhoon Haiyan that hit the Philippines in November, the Red Cross provided necessary relief for hundreds of thousands of people facing emergencies and disasters.

In addition, with the help of our generous donors and volunteers, the Red Cross continued to fulfill its mission to collect lifesaving blood products, inoculate children from measles and rubella, support the military, and teach lifesaving skills.

The 2013 Year in Review provides a short overview of the work we do 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
