Attendees of this year’s European Supply Chain Excellence Awards have helped to raise £3,275 for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
Through its 186 Red Cross and Red Crescent member National Societies, IFRC is a global humanitarian organisation that acts before, during and after natural and man-made disasters at the community level in non-conflict situations.
IFRC’s relief operations are combined with development work, including disaster risk reduction programmes, health and care activities, and the promotion of humanitarian values.
In particular, it supports programmes on prevention and fighting the spread of diseases, such as HIV, tuberculosis, avian influenza and malaria.
IFRC also works to combat discrimination and violence, as well as assisting migrants irrespective of their legal status.
