The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world’s largest humanitarian network that reaches 150 million people in 190 National Societies through the work of over 17 million volunteers.
Together, we act before, during and after disasters and health emergencies to meet the needs and improve the lives of vulnerable people. We do so without discrimination as to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions.
If you are interested in carrying out Red Cross Red Crescent voluntary work, please contact the Red Cross or Red Crescent Society in your country to ask them about the volunteering opportunities. To find the contact details, please select here the region in which you live; Africa, America, Asia and Pacific, Europe, Middle East and North Africa.
You can make a difference! Each National Society works with and through its volunteers in a variety of service areas, depending on the needs of their communities. These activities can include tackling challenges such as migration, violence in communities, health challenges including HIV and AIDS to name but a few. You can make a difference in the lives of those in your community who are of the greatest need – volunteer, get involved!
