STAFF and volunteers of the Red Cross office in Auki joined the rest of the world to celebrate Red Cross International Day yesterday.
Mr Rex Leafasia from the Branch Office of Red Cross Auki said yesterday that every May 8 the Red Cross international day is marked throughout the world.
“So to honour the day, I talk with my Red Cross volunteers and arranged to come together to mark the day.
“We spend times with families and friends and enjoy the day with food,” he said.
The World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day is an annual celebration of the principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.
World Red Cross Red Crescent Day is celebrated on May 8 each year.
This date is the anniversary of the birth of Henry Dunant, the founder of the movement, who was born May 8, 1828.
