Egypt: Celebrating ten years of safer, healthier children The Egyptian Red Crescent Society’s health and safety programme, which teaches children and young people how to create a culture of hygiene, health promotion and risk reduction, is celebrating ten successful years. With 190 national societies the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is the largest humanitarian organisation in the world. The German Red Cross is part of this global community, having provided comprehensive aid for more than 150 years for people in conflict situations, disasters and health or social emergency situations, solely based on their level of need. Under the banner of humanity, we campaign for life, health, welfare, protection, peaceful coexistence and the dignity of all human beings. Our idea is borne worldwide by over 100 million volunteers and members. Approximately four million members are active in Germany alone.
