Youth Red Cross

The Red Cross's very motto, "Service to Society" is carried out by its members, who are the builders of the nation.
All YRC efforts are guided by three fundamental principles:

  • Promotion of health and life
  • Service to the sick and the suffering
  • Promotion of national and international friendship to develop the mental and moral capacities of the youth

Objective
