Helping to Save Lives Around the WorldHelping to Save Lives Around the World
Local Volunteers, Global Impact.
Each year, disasters and crises devastate millions of people. As part of the world’s largest humanitarian network, Red Cross Red Crescent teams provide relief and hope in nearly every corner of the globe. Volunteers often come from the communities they serve, making us powerful change-makers. Together, Red Cross Red Crescent teams not only respond to emergencies—such as earthquakes, droughts, and health epidemics—but also help neighborhoods prepare for future disasters and ensure that children receive the vaccines they need to stay healthy.
Help the victims of countless crises around the world each year by making a financial gift to American Red Cross International Services, which will provide immediate and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance, and other support to those in need.
