Every year, the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society carries out several campaigns to raise awareness about the appropriate use of the red crescent emblem as a protective and as an indicative device. From 19 to 23 September 2012, Bangladesh Red Crescent volunteers in the north-eastern district of Habiganj went door-to-door to address and raise awareness of instances of misuse of this symbol of hope and impartiality. The ICRC teamed up with the volunteers to bring the local government and members of civil society on board.
