 “Otherwise capable”

The Monegasque Red Cross helping disaster victims

Published on 09.11.2018

A recent decision will see over 159,000 euros earmarked for humanitarian emergency aid given by the international movement of the Red Cross and Red Crescent. 

Monaco, 24/10/2018  – on Friday 19th October, the Executive Committee of the Monegasque Red Cross, chaired by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, allocated financial aid to its partners to respond to the many tragedies that have recently been in the news.

  • The Bridge of Genoa: after the collapse of this viaduct, causing the death of 43 people, the Monegasque Red Cross was asked by the Italian Red Cross to contribute to the purchase of first aid equipment to a total amount of 28,000 euros.


  • Earthquakes and tsunami in Indonesia: in the aftermath of the events that hit the Central Sulawesi province on 28th September, an appeal for donations was launched amongst the people of Monaco. The money collected, currently amounting to over 21,000 euros, to which has been added 30,000€ from the Monegasque Red Cross, will be handed over to the International Federation of the Red Cross, which is working on the spot, in conditions that remain difficult, helping the tens of thousands of victims.


Hundreds of people are presenting to Red Cross medical clinics every day, with injuries and illness including diarrhoea. More than 2,500 survivors have been treated by medics since the earthquake and tsunami struck.


The Monegasque Red Cross also continues to work for victims of natural disasters that do not always come into the limelight. Thus it has also decided to contribute an amount totalling 80,000 euros to the humanitarian response following the recent floods in Laos, population movement from Venezuela, Typhoon Mangkhut in the Philippines and the flooding in Nigeria.

Without its donors, the Monegasque Red Cross would not be able to give those affected the emergency assistance they need to in order to resume their lives and be better prepared.

To give help, you can donate online on the Monegasque Red Cross website at:, or by cheque made out to the Monegasque Red Cross, or in cash, telling us which cause you would like your money to be used for.
