One hundred and fifty years ago, a battle in northern Italy sparked an idea that has since changed the world. On 24 June 1859, Henry Dunant, a young Geneva businessman, witnessed horrifying suffering and agony following the battle of Solferino. The need for humanitarian action is still as vital today as it was in 1859.
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is one of the world’s leading first aid providers. World First Aid Day is a day to promote first aid knowledge and skills in the community. Furthermore, with this year’s theme “First Aid for All”, it was particularly interesting to combine first aid with activities promoting knowledge of the Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement and its fundamental principles and values.
