"Friends of Red Cross" and their relatives visited Hong Kong Red Cross (HKRC) Headquarters on 23rd June, they exchanged ideas with representatives of several service departments and gained a better understanding of HKRC.
The gathering included “First Aid Trivia” talk, “Human Library” and tour of Humanitarian Education Centre -"Light the Darkness” exhibition zone. This year, we have added a new session - Human Library. Representatives of Blood Transfusion, Overseas Disaster Relief and Development, and Psychological Support services are invited to be the “human books”, which they shared their stories and feelings behind humanitarian services in small group setting. Participants took initiatively to exchange ideas with sharing guests, and they even did not wish the session to end!
Through these sessions, we wish our Friends of Red Cross and their relatives not only learn practical skills of First Aid, but also to learn more about the services of HKRC and understand the importance of humanity education.
