The Lebanese Red Cross welcomes and thanks you for visiting its page in order to know everything related to the society which is a society for all people and for the entire nation. In hearts that burst with love, and throb with tender and affection, and a spirit of brotherhood and humanity we welcome you.
The Lebanese Red cross is a national society by which volunteers made their duties by following seven basic principles such as neutrality, impartiality, and humanity and which aims to help all groups of the society regardless of religion or race. It depends on the effort of the 7000 volunteers who give from their time and effort in order to serve the most vulnerable and needy without expecting any return; they are always ready to serve those who are in need. Those volunteers who took the voluntary work as a life style stunned all with their courage and rescue mission so they became a model of giving. There are several faces of volunteerism and no matter how small it is, it will make a difference and save a life and enhance our capacities in order to keep us up to the challenges and responsibilities in order to support vulnerable people.
We appreciate every effort done by the volunteers on all levels and we would like to thank you for visiting our site and also to thank all who gave help and support to the Lebanese Red Cross and who believed in its mission and appreciated the efforts of its volunteers to apply our slogan “together for human everywhere” .
