Helping our Red Cross Partners

The American Red Cross works with a global network of Red Cross, Red Crescent and equivalent societies to restore hope and dignity to the world's vulnerable people.  This international Red Cross movement brings emergency relief to disaster victims and improves basic living conditions of those in chronically deprived areas of the world.  Guided by our seven Fundamental Principles — Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary Service, Unity and Universality — the American Red Cross partners with countless organizations in the efficient and effective relief of human suffering and the empowerment of people with the skills they need to help themselves.

By sharing its expertise and resources, the American Red Cross is committed to strengthening the capacities of other national societies, supporting them to better serve their local communities.  Working with more than 30 national societies in Africa, the Balkans, the Caribbean, the Caucasus, Central America and Russia, the American Red Cross is helping to build and sustain strong Red Cross and Red Crescent organizations to deliver quality community services.  This is an empowering process that positions national society leaders as drivers of their organizational development with the American Red Cross supporting them in conducting organizational capacity diagnostics, facilitating strategic planning, designing volunteer recruiting and training systems, building strategic relations with communities and businesses, developing financial sustainability strategies and practices, and strengthening the national society's public image.

The American Red Cross has helped to develop disaster preparedness programs in many countries throughout the Caribbean and the Americas as well as in Mexico, Bulgaria, Turkey, Cambodia and most recently in Egypt. These programs will help strengthen each country's disaster services program as well as improve its response to large-scale disasters.

Support for our International Red Cross Movement partners mobilizes the technical skills and resources from across the American Red Cross.  American Red Cross chapters are integral to this process and are involved in a number of organizational strengthening programs around the world.
