Queen Letizia of Spain presided over the act of the “World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day” in Valencia that highlighted the importance of Red Cross staff and volunteers who save lives and assist vulnerable communities around the world. World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day are celebrated on May 8, coinciding with the birth of Henry Dunant, its founder. The philanthropist and Swiss businessman Henry Dunant were on a work trip in Algeria when he decided to travel to Solferino to meet Napoleon III. On June 24, 1859, just after his arrival, the war between the Austrian and Franco-Piedmontese armies began. The fight ended with almost 40,000 wounded or dead.

After receiving the greetings of the government officials and Red Cross authorities upon arrival, Letizia stood for a group photograph.  The event began with the projection of the video “Ukraine needs us”.

The theme of this year’s commemoration revolves around the 7 principles of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, to make them known and share them with society through the motto “Be Better” recognizing the COVID heroes, La Palma Volcano front line volunteers, and those who volunteered in the armed conflict in Europe. In 2021 alone, the Red Cross has reached almost 15 million people, taking into account that, in this second year of the pandemic, the “Red Cross RESPOND” plan served more than 2.5 million people.
