Egyptian Red Crescent Society teams have been active in the streets and squares of Egypt during the recent demonstrations, establishing mobile health points and first aid posts to provide emergency services.
Volunteers have also offered psychosocial support in hospitals and helped to organize and promote blood donation campaigns.
In light of the current situation, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and the International Committee of Red Cross are committed to continue to enhance the capacities of Egyptian Red Crescent Society to enable the organization to provide vital humanitarian services.
As the situation progresses, the Red Crescent will monitor events across the country to ensure assistance can be delivered as it is needed.
