What does it mean to be a Red Cross Red Crescent volunteer in a war zone? It means remaining neutral, impartial, and humane. And all too often, it means putting your life at risk. This weekend, two Palestine Red Crescent volunteers were killed while providing humanitarian assistance.
Volunteers in Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank are working around the clock to help the injured, provide & teach first aid, and evacuate people in danger. As part of the same global network, Israel’s Magen David Adom and the Palestine Red Crescent choose humanitarianism—not sides—in this conflict.
