What we stand for
Our mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable people by mobilising the power of humanity and enhancing community resilience.
Red Cross Fundamental Principles
The seven Fundamental Principles are the foundation for all the work the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement and National Societies around the world do.
International Humanitarian Law
International humanitarian law, also known as the rules of war, applies to armed conflicts. It aims to limit the suffering in armed conflicts and save lives.
The Red Cross emblems
The emblems of the Red Cross, Red Crescent and Red Crystal have both a protective and indicative purpose. Their use is governed by international and New Zealand law.
The Treaty of Waitangi
Our work in relation to Māori and Te Tiriti o Waitangi | The Treaty of Waitangi.
