THIS IS TO RECALL HOW MUCH HUMANITERIAN FEELINGS & ACTIVITIES WE ARE ALREADY DOING FOR A LONG DAYS.
Humanity : The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement,
born of a desire to bring assistance without discrimination to the
wounded on the battlefield, endeavors, in its international and
national capacity, to prevent and alleviate human suffering
wherever it may be found. Its purpose is to protect life and health
and to ensure respect for the human being.
It promotes mutual understanding, friendship,
cooperation and lasting peace amongst all peoples.
Impartiality : It makes no discrimination as to nationally,
race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions.
It endeavors to relieve the suffering of individuals,
being solely by their needs, and to give priority to the most urgent
cases of distress.
Neutrality : In orders to enjoy the confidence of all,
the Movement may not take sides in hostilities or
engage in controversies of a political, racial, religious or
Independence : The Movement is independent.
The National Societies, while auxiliaries in the humanitarian services
of their governments and subject to the laws of their respective countries,
must always maintain their autonomy so that they may be able at all times
to act in accordance with the principles of the Movement.

in any manner by desire for gain.
Unity : There can be only one Red Cross Or Red Crescent in
any one country. It must be open to all. It must carry on its
humanitarian work throughout its territory.

Red Crescent Movement, in which all societies have equal status
and share equal responsibilities and duties in helping each other, is worldwide.
