The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We are part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies. We enable vulnerable people in the UK and abroad to prepare for and withstand emergencies in their own communities. And when the crisis is over, we help them to recover and move on with their lives.
Following the Earthquake that hit Haiti in January 2010, under the coordination framework of the international Federation of Red Cross/Crescent Societies, BRC established an integrated programme to assist affected communities to recover from the disaster.
