Believe in the Power of Kindness

 

May 8 is World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day. It is also the birthday of Henri Dunant, founder of the international Red Cross movement.

The international Red Cross and Red Crescent movement assumes the humanitarian character of preventing and alleviating pains and sufferings of humans.

The movement embodies humanity, fairness, neutrality, independence, voluntariness, uniqueness and universality as the fundamental principles in its activities.

At present, many people are leaving their native places due to the frequent disputes between religions and nations in several regions of the world, suffering from hunger and pains.

They also greatly suffer from the world health crises and adverse effects of climate change including global warming.

The international Red Cross and Red Crescent movement still gains strength, focusing on these afflicted regions and people.

The kindhearted and self-sacrificing efforts of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, national societies and volunteers in many countries give hope to many sufferers of disasters and misfortune.

The theme for this year’s World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day is “Believe in the power of kindness”.

The DPRK Red Cross Society works hard to give fullest play to humanitarianism, the main spirit of the Red Cross movement.

At the moment, our society directs efforts to saving and protecting the people’s lives and properties from all sorts of disasters and crises and building up self-reconstruction capacity by placing main emphasis on disaster prevention and mitigation.

It also pays attention to preventing all kinds of diseases including COVID-19 pandemic, intensifying the dissemination of first-aid treatment techniques, health information activities and health education and improving ecological environment and environmental hygiene.
