Mission:

The Philippine National Red Cross brings timely, effective and compassionate humanitarian assistance for the most vulnerable without consideration of nationality, race, creed, gender, social status or political belief.

History:

Born officially in 1947, but with roots that traces back to the revolutionary days, the Philippine National Red Cross has truly become the premier humanitarian organization in the country, committed to provide quality life-saving services that protect the life and dignity especially of indigent Filipinos in vulnerable situations.
\
In all its 60 years of reputable existence, the PNRC has lived through many changes that were intended to help more people. Where it used to be involved only in providing blood and in disaster-related activities, the PNRC now focuses on a holistic approach to uplift the condition of the most vulnerable. Where it used to offer short-term palliatives, it now offers a wider array of humanitarian services ranging from preventive medicine to therapeutic counseling to youth leadership.

At present, the PNRC provides six major services:

Blood Services

We save lives by providing safe blood and blood products in a cost effective manner utilizing quality management systems as a fulfillment of the social responsibility of the PNRC.

Disaster Management

We provide relief in times of disasters and to carry on measures to minimize the suffering caused by them. Disaster preparedness is also a major component of its program that aims to prepare especially the vulnerable communities in the event of calamities.

Safety Services

We conduct of training in First Aid, Basic Life Support - Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, Water Safety (Swimming, Aquatic Lifesaving & Lifeguarding), Accident Prevention and other basic rescue courses.

The Safety Services also renders first aid, ambulance, beach patrol, lifeguarding and basic rescue services. It also encourages physical fitness and practice of skills learned through its First Aid Olympics and Swim and Stay-fit programs.

Community Health and Nursing

We educate the Filipino on basic health care and in providing access to health services for vulnerable groups and communities. The beneficiaries of the program include children, the elderly, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and persons with disabilities.

Social Services

We maintain professional relationships with the government and private welfare agencies in serving civilians, servicemen and veterans with respect to government benefits as well as health and welfare inquiries of displaced relatives and friends.

Volunteer Service

All of the above 6 major services embody the fundamental principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement – humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality. These values guide and inspire all Red Cross staff and volunteers, to whom being a Red Crosser is more than just a philosophy but a way of life.

We take pride in urging all Filipinos to take part in the heroism of the Philippine National Red Cross by becoming a full-fledged member, volunteer, or donor
