Mission:


The Indian Red Cross Society aims to inspire, encourage and initiate at all time, all forms of humanitarian activities so that human suffering can be minimized, alleviated and even prevented, thus contribute to create a more congenial climate for peace.


Fundamental Principles:


Humanity 

 

The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, born of a desire  to bring assistance without discrimination to the wounded on the battlefield, endeavours, in its international and national capacity, to prevent and alleviate human suffering wherever it may be found.  Its purpose is to protect life and health and to ensure respect for the human being. It promotes mutual understanding, friendship, cooperation and lasting peace amongst all people.

 

Impartiality

 

It makes no discrimination as to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions.  It endeavours to relieve the suffering of individuals, being guided solely by their needs, and to give priority to the most urgent cases of distress.


 Neutrality

 

In order to continue to enjoy the confidence of all, the Movement may not take sides in hostilities or engage at any time in controversies of a political, racial, religious or ideological nature.


Independence


The Movement is independent. The National Societies, while auxiliaries in the humanitarian services of their governments and subject to the laws of their respective countries, must always maintain their autonomy so that they may be able at all times to act in accordance with the principles of the Movement.

 

 Voluntary Service

 

It is a voluntary relief movement not prompted in any manner by desire for gain.

 


Unity

 

There can be only one Red Cross or one Red Crescent society in any one country.  It must be open to all.  It must carry on its humanitarian work throughout its territory.


                         

Universality

 

The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, in which all societies have equal status and share equal responsibilities and duties in helping each other, is worldwide.
