Here to help
Each disaster is different, but we adapt our resources to the needs of the people we serve…
Distribution of emergency supplies
Emergency supplies help people in the immediate aftermath of a disaster and in the days and weeks that follow. Our comfort kits contain basic personal supplies needed in the aftermath a disaster, such as a tarpaulin, bucket, kitchen set, mosquito net, clothes etc... Other emergency supplies could include tooth brush, tooth paste, soap, detergent cake, coconut oil, shaving razor, sanitary napkin etc... To help people clean up their homes and return to normalcy.
Red Cross health volunteers travel to disaster sites to help people cope, health workers can provide first aid treatment for injuries; monitor the well-being of people staying in the shelters.
Mental Health Services:
Red Cross mental health volunteers travel to disaster sites to help people cope; mental health workers specialize in providing emotional support and helping people to cope after a disaster.
I cannot over-emphasize the value of volunteers at the IRCS, Gujarat state branch. We are one of the oldest organizations founded by volunteers and we absolutely rely on our volunteers to help us. Meet our humanitarian service. Remember, we have around 4 to 5% employees, but over 95% volunteers. We could not fulfill our mission without our amazing volunteers.
Together, we make this organization strong.
We organize 2 days training on how to prepare against a disaster so that losses can be minimized. Our aim to prepare at least one thousand trained volunteers in each district. Join the Red Cross and become a real hero.
