The Palau Red Cross Society
Palau Red Cross Society (PRCS) is a not-for-profit humanitarian organisation, established by the Palau National Congress through House Joint Resolution 5-24-3 on 31 July 1997.
PRCS became a recognised member of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on 30 September 1997. It was admitted as a member to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) on 20 November 1997, joining a membership of 190 National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies around the world.
Our mandate is to serve the most vulnerable, alleviate human suffering and contribute to the promotion of human dignity and peace.
Our work is based on the seven Fundamental Principles of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement:
- Voluntary Service
Our leadership and management comprises a governing board elected by our members, and a staff managed by an Executive Director.
Through our headquarters in Koror and network of volunteers, we provide services throughout the country and will soon be establishing branches in different locations to further expand our activities.
PRCS is currently embarking on a period of positive change and growth. We are creating a future which embraces the following commitments:
- Supporting communities in Palau to become more resilient to the impacts of disaster and climate change
- Promoting safe and healthy living through community based health and first aid activities
- Expanding our membership and volunteer base, in a way which includes all members of society, regardless of age, gender, nationality, disability or other factors.
- Ensuring open and transparent governance and management to remain accountable to our members and the people we serve.
As a non-political, non-religious organisation we strive to attract people committed to our vision and the Fundamental Principles of the Red Cross and Red Crescent.
