About this title


Part of a series of six volumes designed to help young people understand the vital role of organizations like the Red Cross in their struggles to create a better world. The International Red Cross and Red Crescent movement is the largest organization in the world devoted to the care of people who need help. The Red Cross was originally founded by Swiss citizen, Henry Dunant, to help the wounded in battle. Now the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, it has extended its areas of concern to the welfare of prisoners of war, victims of civil war, disaster relief, to health care and help for disabled people. Its emblems, the Red Cross and Red Crescent, are recognized all over the world as symbols of aid and relief. Other titles in the series include "Amnesty International", "Greenpeace", "The United Nations", "The United Nations Commission for Refugees" and "The World Wide Fund for Nature".

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7-10--Activism and commitment unite these three international organizations. Italicized text in boxes set off from the main narrative accompany bountiful full-color photographs and illustrations depicting rescues, leaders, rallies, and other actions central to these sometimes controversial agencies. The books offer excellent descriptions of their goals, history, and current activities. The texts read smoothly but require good reading comprehension. Especially informative are the facts surrounding the formation of the Red Crescent in Muslim countries. The authors have packed enormous amounts of material between the covers of each book. Descriptions of sources for readers interested in getting involved with these groups are included. Solid information for students wanting to know more about organizations effecting change, and their struggles and victories.
