The Australian Red Cross
'The Power of Humanity'
What is the Australian Red Cross?
At first, it was supposed to be a part of the British Red Cross and helped the army in lots of things like supplying bandages. They were a member of the International Red Cross Red Crescent along with over a hundred other countries.
The young organisation rapidly grew in the country, especially New South Wales. In less than a year, in fact a few months, there were around three hundred branches in the whole of New South Wales.
Helping developing countries
One way that the Australian Red Cross would improve is by reaching out to more places that have problems. They can, for example, help sick animals such as whales and prevent extinction.
