112 years since the death of Henry Dunant
Today we are marking the 112th anniversary of Henry Dunant’s death. A visionary man who transformed a seemingly impossible idea into the largest humanitarian organization known worldwide today.
Our essence as an organization is based on the values that he cherished, that is, “to provide help without asking who the help is for”, highlighting today’s well-known principles of humanity, impartiality and neutrality.
Additional fact: Henry Dunant is the winner of the first Nobel Peace Prize. The Red Cross
has won three additional Nobel Prizes awards in the same field.
