Cooperation with ICRC and IFRC


The Bulgarian Red Cross cooperates very actively with the most important components of the Movement, such as the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies (IFRC) and the European Office of the National Red Cross Societies in the EU countries.

They are supporting the Bulgarian Red Cross in conducting various training programmes, aiming at building the capacity of the organization and joint activities in the areas of dissemination of the International Humanitarian Law, Restoring Family Links, Disaster Preparedness and Disaster Response, health activities, working with volunteers, implementing participatory projects with vulnerable marginalized communities, participating in international activities such as the International Road Safety Initiative and others.

The Bulgarian Red Cross has a Memorandum of Understanding with the IFRC for participation of its personnel in the Regional Disaster Response Team and its deployment in international actions in cases of disaster in other countries. The Bulgarian Red Cross representatives have participated already in a number of international missions in support of other RC National Societies.
