The Swedish Red Cross works to ensure that no one is left alone in a disaster. Together with 191 other National Societies, we form the world’s largesthumanitarian network.

Our mission is to prevent and alleviate human suffering, protect life and health, and ensure respect for the dignity of each individual.

The Swedish Red Cross is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1865. Today, we are the largest humanitarian volunteer organization in Sweden, with about 25,000 volunteers in 722 local branches, scattered across the entire country. We are an important component of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and a major contributor to National Societies in
other countries.

Our three areas of operation

Crisis and disaster:
The Swedish Red Cross is part of the world’s largest humanitarian movement. With millions of local volunteers all over the world, we can quickly be on site when a crisis or disaster strikes to help the survivors. Together we fight to ensure that no one is left alone in a disaster.

Health and care:
The right to quality and equity in health. We offer medical care and treatment, psychosocial support following stressful events, and activities that promote health and well-being.

International law and protection: 
Each human being has the right to seek protection and every child has the right to live with his or her family. All over the world, the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is fighting to reunite families that have been separated, supporting refugees and ensuring that human rights are respected in situation of conflict and captivity.
