World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day in Monaco: #Keepclapping!

Published on 02.09.2020

This year, no Monaco Red Cross street sale! The time is now to acknowledge the day-to-day work of the association’s volunteers, who have been particularly active since the beginning of March with the coronavirus epidemic.

Monaco, 8th May 2020 – Although the street sale is not taking place this year on World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day, the date has already been fixed for next year on Saturday 15th May 2021. The Monaco Red Cross is extremely proud to commend the hard work carried out by its volunteers and staff, who are doing everything they can to take action among those in need during the Covid-19 epidemic.

The Monaco Red Cross has been continually active as from the first few days of the crisis, providing vital health information to prevent the spread of the disease and to limit its impact on the most vulnerable members. Since 16th March, over 1,500 volunteer days have been carried out!

In addition to the action implemented by the Government of Monaco, the Monaco Red Cross has intervened in monitoring those affected by Covid-19 and symptomatic individuals (service now on standby), various home services, deliveries (over 23,000 deliveries since 16th March), supply of personal protective equipment, call centre (over 3,200 calls since 6th March), psychosocial support,…

Some of these activities will gradually be stopped, depending on how the health situation evolves. Others have now started, including the distribution of masks at Monaco Station and support for associations, businesses and retailers during the lifting of lockdown…

According to Frédéric Platini, Secretary General of the Monaco Red Cross, “Being a member of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement has been a real advantage for us, the Monaco Red Cross, during this crisis period. We have been able to assess and appreciate the power of this network highly active in 192 countries”.
