How our services help people
Local nurse on the front line
Guru Dev Singh’s first dealings with Red Cross were as a small girl growing up in the town of Lautoka in Fiji. The Fiji Red Cross helped her learn some of her first survival skills, by teaching her to swim.
Tropical Cyclone Ian
Category 4 Tropical Cyclone Ian hit Tonga’s Ha’apai islands leaving a wake of damage in its path. Wind gusts of up to 270km/h caused extensive damage to homes with 2000 people still sheltering in evacuation centres.
Life after Typhoon Haiyan
Fourteen-year-old Rona Mae is standing at the place where her house used to be before Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines on 8 November last year. Her home in Tacloban is now submerged in the ocean, and her grandmother and an aunt are among the 1,700 people still missing.
