The Canadian Red Cross supports National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in Africa in helping vulnerable communities become strong and resilient. Thousands of dedicated volunteers and staff members in Africa work day and night, often in extreme and dangerous conditions, to meet this goal. We support our partners in Africa to implement programs that improve the health of women and children, reduce risks from disasters and help communities rebuild after conflict and disaster. We believe that strong African Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies are vital to real and lasting change for African communities.
