Swiss Red Cross (Schweizerisches Rotes Kreuz)

Swiss Red Cross (Schweizerisches Rotes Kreuz)

The SRC was founded in 1866 in Bern, Switzerland. In accordance with the Geneva Red Cross Agreement and its recognition through the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.

Although the origin of the Red Cross is not based on abstract principles but on the spontaneous action of the people who, on the battlefield of Solferino in 1859, came to the aid of the wounded and dying, a search was conducted early on for principles and guidelines for the humanitarian Movement that was to be created.
