World Red Cross Day (also known as Red Crescent Day) is observed every year on May 8. It is a gentle nod to all the volunteers who have made an unparalleled contribution to people in duress or need. The 2019 theme chosen by them is, ‘#Love’.
Incidentally, the day is also the birthday of Henry Dunant, who had generated the Red Cross Committee of the International (ICRI) in 1863 in Switzerland, Geneva. He was born in May 8, 1828 and was also the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.
