The theme of World Red Cross Day 2022 is ‘BeHumanKind’.
Acts of kindness are all around us. No matter how big or small, they make a huge difference in people's lives. On this World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day, we celebrate all types of acts of kindness and show how, together, they have a truly global impact.
WORLD RED CROSS DAY HISTORY
The first Red Cross Day was celebrated on May 8, 1948. In 1946 during World War II, the Tokyo proposal was put into effect. The possibility of an annual celebration was asked by the Board of Governors of the "League of the Red Cross Societies (LORCS)", later called the General Assembly of the International Federation of Red Cross Societies.
