My Red Cross Story - Voices from India
The theme to celebrate the World Red Cross Red Crescent Day this year was 'My Red Cross Red Crescent Story, through which the Movement is documenting stories of all those who have been touched by the Red Cross or the Red Crescent in some way, either as a volunteer or as a beneficiary. While many soul-stirring and inspiring stories of the Movement reached the ICRC worldwide, we're sharing with you some of the Indian voices.
