Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Chairman and CEO Richard Gordon encourages all Filipinos to take part in the heroism of their agency, by efficiently delivering humanitarian services as this act saves the lives of vulnerable individuals.
Gordon said this in line with the PRC's celebration of World Humanitarian Day on August 19.
As the foremost humanitarian organization in the country, the PRC said it provides six major services: Blood Services, Disaster Management Services, Safety Services, Health Services, Social Services, Red Cross Youth, and Volunteer Services.
Gordon also thanked the volunteers, staff, and donors of the PRC, who all came from different walks of life but participated in the unity to help other Filipinos.
In a statement, PRC said its volunteers continue to inspire more communities as they share their resources, time, and efforts to build bigger and stronger villages of humanitarian workers to alleviate human suffering.
Through its Red Cross 143, the PRC promotes a culture of self-help in the communities by developing a network of volunteers trained to predict potential risk, plan, prepare, and practice for effective community-based disaster risk reduction.
To become a PRC volunteer, the agency said interested applicants might contact the Volunteer Service Office at ?7902300? local 945, or they may send an email at [email protected]
