The Blue Cross and Blue Crescent (BC) is a Worldwide non-profit, charitable, non-governmental, politically and religiously neutral humanitarian response agency involved in disaster response, first response, search and rescue, lifeguarding, frontline activism, advocacy and skills-sharing organisation.
Our strength lies in our volunteer network of community-based humanitarian workers, medics, first-aiders, first responders, lifeguards, rescue workers, activists, advocates, lobbyists, and educators who offer their skills in service ‘For all humanity’. We actively persuade decision makers to act at all times in the interests of vulnerable or at risk people and communities. We were created to enable all interested humanitarian workers, to offer their skills, in particularly, as first-aider’s and first responders covering high risk events and lifeguard cover, to enable medical and healthcare professionals to offer their skills as humanitarian medics for the promotion of humanitarian community public health, to improve humanitarian standards, to poverty regions, disaster stricken or disaster vulnerable regions, to enable all interested humanitarian rescue workers to offer their skills in those disaster stricken regions, and to provide education programs in disaster awareness, preparation & prevention, survival skills, emergency planning in disaster vulnerable regions. Our programs help us improve humanitarian standards, assist as partners in response to disasters, enable safe, secure and healthy communities, reduce vulnerabilities, strengthen resilience, and promote a culture of peace around the world.
