French Red Cross Report-February 2018

The French Red Cross thanks all the people who supported its action during the last month and year.

Please find below information about our last activities:


Promoting the access to hygiene to those in greatest need

The French Red Cross allows those in greatest need to have an access to basic hygiene by welcoming them within facilities for persons in situation of serious exclusion. During the day, a shower, a washing machine, a hygiene-kit as well as a warm meal and different activities and animations are put at their disposal. This enables people in very precarious situations to get self-esteem, confidence and autonomy back. Because of the great success of this initiative, the French Red Cross decided to renovate and develop these hygiene facilities.

International volunteer day

The French Red Cross took part in December to the International volunteer day. The organization indeed counts 59 000 volunteers dedicated to helping vulnerable people. The French Red Cross puts all means at disposal into welcoming all sorts of voluntary engagement in order to make volunteering accessible for all. The French Red Cross highlighted all kinds of voluntary engagement during the International Volunteer Day and recalled that volunteering reinforces solidarity, but is also a way for each person to give a sense to his daily-life, to take responsibilities and to acquire skills.

Creation of the first social emergency awareness module for the general public

The French Red Cross created last year the very first social emergency awareness module intended for the general public that allows everyone to become an actor of solidarity. It gives people an opportunity to acquire the right reflexes to face the social vulnerability of the most fragile ones. This module is accessible from 12 years old on and is articulated around a chain of 5 steps: observing, coming into relation, listening, putting the person through and ending the interaction. Everyone can come across someone who is vulnerable. Indeed, one in every four homeless person has a job, one in every four elderly is alone and 80% of the violence suffered by isolated people is psychological. The French Red Cross wants to raise awareness of this situation.

Post-Irma: Supporting the most vulnerable persons and preparing to disaster relief

The work achieved during the emergency phase on the French Antilles allowed the French Red Cross to identify the priority issues and needs, to target the people in most precarious situations and the isolated and most dependent ones. Because of that, the French Red Cross developed different projects intended to help these populations in a long-term perspective. The organization puts at the disposal of 2000 families different vouchers in order to ensure their supply of essential goods, it provided base materials to 500 families to help them rebuild their homes, it thought of a tool to raise awareness on the major risks of natural catastrophes intended for children, it reinforced the pre-positioning of stocks, etc.


The French Red Cross, founded in 1864, is an independent charity working alongside governments and public authorities. As a key player in society, we provide humanitarian, health, social, welfare and training services. To help carry out our assignments we have a strong team of 18,000 employees and 56,000 volunteers, who on a daily basis, pursue consistent and unwavering charitable principles to provide local support and deliver tangible results and long-term solutions.
