March-May 2019 Report

By Julie James | Project Manager

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

Please find below information about of our latest activities:


 National Days of the French Red Cross

From 18 to 26 May 2019 are held the National Days of the French Red Cross : the unmissable event during which thousands of volunteers throughout France will meet you to collect a maximum of donations to continue to carry out their actions of proximity to the most vulnerable and save lives throughout the year!
The actors of the French Red Cross are in the front line and mobilize daily in the face of isolation, distress, insecurity, pain and exclusion. They need you at a time when associations are playing an increasingly important role for the poor in an increasingly difficult economic and financial context, which is having a major impact on already vulnerable populations.

Wandering devices to break the isolation and create social bonds
As part of its National Mobility program, the French Red Cross diversifies its modes of intervention to extend its action closer to needs, develops new logic of support for the public towards autonomy, and participates in the dynamic of animation of territories, especially the most fragile territories.
The itinerant devices called "Red Cross on Wheels" crisscross the roads of France by going to meet the most vulnerable, closer to their place of residence. The Red Cross on Wheels teams take care to break the isolation that these people suffer, to promote their social integration and, more broadly, to strengthen the social bond.
Real places of exchange and conviviality, the Red Cross on Wheels offers a diversity of services, answering basic needs identified in advance with the actors of the territory: food and clothing aids, access to hygiene products, access to rights, baby parents area, digital accompaniment, etc.

Asylum-seekers volunteer at the French Red Cross
When Amar, Ibrahim, Fode Salif and Amadou Oury arrived in France, they were helped and accompanied by the Red Cross and other associations. Once installed, they in turn wished to help the refugees.
Translation, orientation, administrative assistance ... their missions within the Local Unit of Lyon are varied. Thanks to their experience of the migratory journey and to the different languages they know, they bring a precious help to the team of the Home-Listen center.

Cyclone IDAI in Mozambique: French Red Cross sends emergency response team
Following the tropical cyclone IDAI, which struck Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe on the night of 14-15 March 2019, the humanitarian response is being organized. The French Red Cross immediately sent an emergency response team (ERU) specializing in water, hygiene and sanitation and shipped the next day 60 tons of humanitarian supplies by sea to Beira. The affected areas remain difficult to reach and the extent of the damage remains uncertain. In Mozambique, an interim record of 417 deaths, more than 1,500 injuries and 600,000 people affected, while an estimated 1.5 million people affected in all three countries.

French Red Cross World Conference: "Healing humanity at + 2 ° C"
While the consequences of climate change on health are already visible, the French Red Cross organized on 15 and 16 April in Cannes the first "humanitarian COP". On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), this global conference brought together more than 400 participants, experts and practitioners from the field. Together, they took stock of current knowledge, presented innovative solutions and called for the mobilization of all to meet the greatest public health challenge of the twenty-first century.


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.
