Post Luxembourg issued a stamp to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Luxembourg Red Cross.
Since 1914, the Luxembourg Red Cross has continuously expanded its activities in order to offer as much help as possible to the most vulnerable people, both nationally and internationally.
Therefore, this anniversary is an opportunity for the Red Cross to present its activities to the general public and rally the inhabitants of Luxembourg around the causes it defends.
2014 is also the time to take stock and look back at everything that has been achieved thanks to the involvement of men and women over the past 100 years.
The mission of the Luxembourg Red Cross is to help vulnerable people to live independently and with dignity. By mobilizing human solidarity, it acts in an exemplary, efficient and responsible way to rescue those in distress and prevent situations of material, health and social vulnerability, both in Luxembourg and abroad. The Luxembourg Red Cross acts in accordance with the fundamental principles of the international Red Cross and Red Crescent movement.
Its thousands of volunteers and over 1,700 professionals make it a leading player in the health, social, youth and humanitarian fields. The Luxembourg Red Cross is thus involved in activities as diverse as emergency international humanitarian aid, home care, blood transfusions, convalescence, the care of elderly or dependent people in integrated or day centers, social assistance, the care of migrants and refugees, individual help for people in difficulty, childcare centers and youth centers, or even social and family therapeutic services.
