Help the victims of countless crises around the world each year by making a financial gift to American Red Cross International Services, which will provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to those in need.
The American Red Cross is able to respond to the recent Ebola outbreak and other crises around the world through gifts to support American Red Cross International Services. It allows us to respond to the humanitarian need immediately as opposed to responding only after donations are received in the aftermath of a disaster.
This year, the Red Cross has responded to several disasters in Africa alone such as the conflict in Central African Republic and providing aid and relief to families displaced by the violence. We continue to monitor the violence in neighboring countries and if a greater role is required. In addition to responding to disasters, the American Red Cross also is engaged in several disaster preparedness and risk reduction initiatives in Africa as well as other health initiatives focused on eliminating Measles in Africa.
