Fundamental Principles Campaign

The Red Cross Red Crescent Movement has a set of Fundamental Principles to express our universal dedication and commitment to assisting those who are vulnerable around the world to the best of our ability. The Restoring Family Links program diligently works to incorporate each and every one of these principles into the foundation of our work. As part of our campaign to promote awareness and encourage involvement, the Restoring Family Links Blog will examine a different Fundamental Principle each week throughout October and November. A breakdown of the weekly Campaign Topics is as follows:

October 5-9: Humanity

October12-16: Impartiality

October 19-23: Neutrality

October26-30: Independence

November 2-6: Voluntary Service

November 9-13: Unity

November 16-20: Universality
