International Programs

The Canadian Red Cross contributes to the overall mission of the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement worldwide in preventing or alleviating human suffering wherever it may be found.

We support emergency response, recovery and longer-term development by providing specialist personnel and delegates or financial assistance in cooperation with Red Cross partners. Thanks to the generous support of Canadian donors and with the financial support of the Government of Canada provided through Global Affairs Canada, the Canadian Red Cross assists millions of people around the world every year.
