Each year, on 8 May, the World Red Cross Red Crescent Day is marked. The organization underscores the importance and power of partnerships by stressing the need for stronger local and global alliances in order to meet today’s growing humanitarian challenges. The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement represents the world’s largest humanitarian network. It is made up of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), and 185 member National Societies, as well as almost 100 million volunteers. The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies was founded in 1919. Its Headquarters is in Geneva, Switzerland. The general objective of the Federation is to inspire, encourage, facilitate and promote all forms and types of humanitarian activities of the National Societies with a view to preventing and alleviating human suffering and thereby contributing to safeguarding peace. The Bulgarian Red Cross, which was recognized by the International Committee of the Red Cross on October 20th 1885, is also part of the International Red Cross network.
