FOUNDATION:

    Each generation passes on the torch of development to the next. Hence it becomes the challenge for the present generation to groom the future of tomorrow and that is the 'Youth'. The Indian Red Cross which has in its fraternity 10 million Youth Red Cross (YRC) and Junior Red Cross (JRC) members keeps on organizing various programmes and activities for the youth.

FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES OF RED CROSS:

Humanity

     The international Red Cross and Red Crescent movement, born of a desire to bring assistance without discrimination to the wounded on the battle field, endeavors in its international and national capacity. The most significant role of Red Cross is its deep concern and caring for the human being.

Impartiality

   It makes no discrimination as to the nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions. It endeavors to relieve the suffering of individuals, being guided solely by their needs and to give priority to the most urgent case of distress.

Neutrality

   In order to continue to enjoy the confidence of all, the movement may not take sides in hostilities or engage at any time in controversies of a political, racial or ideological nature.

Independence

   The movement is independent. The national societies, while auxiliaries in the humanitarian services of their government 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 movement.

Voluntary service

    It is a voluntary relief movement not prompted in any manner by desire for gain.

Unity

  Red Cross involves people with different backgrounds, knowledge and ideas. Humanity unites different contributions from all people without any discrimination.

Universality

    People wherever they live, find this movement a source of comfort in distress, hope in despair and strength to overcome the agony caused.
