The National Society Capacity Exchange and Enhancement Platform Project

The Project is led by four international National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies: Turkish Red Crescent, British Red Cross, Bulgarian Red Cross, and Red Cross Society of Bosnia and Herzegovina. This country consortium aims to improve the local and national capacity in response to the humanitarian crisis. The primary object of the Project is to allow National Societies to develop and reinforce networks, increase their capacity to operate at a transnational level, share and confront ideas, practices and methods.

Together with the sharing concerns, two pillars are determined as a common objective among the National Societies’ collaboration: Cash and Protection.

The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is the largest humanitarian network in the world. Its mission is to alleviate human suffering, protect life and health, and uphold human dignity, especially during armed conflicts and other emergencies. The Movement is present in every country and supported by millions of volunteers.


The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, born of a desire to bring assistance without discrimination to the wounded on the battlefield, endeavours – in its international and national capacities – to prevent and alleviate suffering wherever it may be found.


The Movement makes no discrimination as to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions. It endeavours to relieve the suffering of individuals, being guided solely by their needs, and to give priority to the most urgent cases of distress.


There can be only one Red Cross or one Red Crescent Society in any one country.



The Movement is independent. The National Societies, while auxiliaries in the humanitarian services of their governments and subject to the laws of their respective countries, must always maintain their autonomy so that they may be able at all times to act in accordance with the principles of the Movement.


In order to continue to enjoy the confidence of all, the Movement may not take sides in hostilities or engage at any time in controversies of a political, racial, religious or ideological nature.


The Movement is a voluntary relief movement not prompted in any manner by desire for gain.


The Movement, in which all National Societies have equal status and share equal responsibilities and duties in helping each other, is worldwide.
