To support the refurbishment of the Red Cross facilities in order to establish the required standards for food storage. The project includes the opening of a new food aid service through the distribution of food parcels. The local delegation does not offer this service currently, and its availability will benefit the increasing number of patients using the organization’s medical services. The service will also answer a growing current demand due to the country’s difficult social conditions.
The national network of the French Red Cross has been active for almost 150 years. The organization’s main field of intervention is the provision of free medical services to the most destitute populations. The French Red Cross also runs emergency services, which welcome and support homeless people and provide them with social, medical and psychological assistance.
