International Volunteer Day 2022, IFRC: “Believe in the power of kindness”

5 December is International Volunteer Day—an opportunity to celebrate and thank those who dedicate their precious time and effort to voluntary service

For the IFRC, it’s about celebrating our nearly 15 million volunteers engaging in local humanitarian action for global good.


International Volunteer Day, the Red Cross ‘thank you’

“Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers are everywhere.

You’ll find them in your street, in your local community, in every corner of the world.

You may even be one of them.

Every day, our millions of volunteers bring kindness to those who need it—no matter who or where they are.

Whether it’s by offering a hot drink or food, listening to someone and supporting their mental wellbeing, delivering essential supplies or cash to remote communities, giving or teaching lifesaving first aid, offering people on the move a safe space to rest, or helping communities adapt to climate change.

Acts of kindness like these, even if they sometimes feel small, make a huge difference to the lives of people in crisis.

Because kindness is powerful.

And kindness is contagious—one small act can lead to another, and another, and another”.

International Volunteer Day, IFRC: “we believe in our volunteers. We believe in the power of kindness”

“Humanity, our first Principle, starts with kindness.

And we believe we can all #BeHumanKind.

On International Volunteer Day, as with every other day of the year, we deeply thank our incredible, unstoppable volunteers.

You are appreciated. You are supported. You are valued”.
