Middle East and North Africa

The Middle East and North Africa region is home to 18 National Societies. With the support of Red Cross Red Crescent partners, these national societies are currently responding to large-scale humanitarian needs across the region as a result of various ongoing conflicts with a special focus on Syria and neighboring countries, as well as Israel and the Palestinian Territories and Iraq. The Canadian Red Cross is focusing on health in emergencies, disaster response and providing personnel and support to our Red Cross and Red Crescent partners who are delivering vital assistance in Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Israel and the occupied Palestinian Territories.
