Red Cross responds to flash floods in central Europe

Flash floods triggered by heavy rains in central Europe – including Germany, the Czech Republic, Poland and Lithuania – have led many Red Cross National Societies to mobilize their volunteers and specialist rescue teams.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world's largest humanitarian organization, with 190 member National Societies . As part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, our work is guided by seven fundamental principles; humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.
