As the Atlantic hurricane season begins and Covid-19 cases rise, countries such as Honduras, already reeling from last year’s storms, are being forced to manage multiple, overlapping crises.
The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is the world’s largest humanitarian network, present in nearly every country around the world. It is neutral and impartial, and dedicated to preventing and alleviating human suffering, protecting life and health, and upholding human dignity especially in armed conflicts and emergencies such as health crises and disasters.
The Movement is composed of:
- 192 National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies »
- The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) »
- The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) »
Together, we can act locally, while mobilizing our global resources. 1 in 65 people around the globe receive help from the Red Cross and Red Crescent every single year. This year is no exception.
