#PastTheTorch

Have you ever wondered how it all began?


On June 24, 1859 The Red Cross was born on the battlefields of Solferino, Italy. When the wounded needed help, without discrimination WE WERE THERE!


Year after year, thousands of  Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers from around the world have gathered in the small Italian town to mark the Movement's history.


This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic all celebrations will be held online for the first time in 25 years.
