By Kaouther Allani, Tunisian Red Crescent volunteer
The Tunisian Red Crescent has always believed in the resilience of the community:
1. It brought help and support to the most vulnerable groups. In 2012, after the cold wave, which has never been seen before in Northwest Tunis, the Red Crescent mobilized itself for the assessment of the damage caused and to identify the needs in that area. The National Society provided the required logistics to those who needed help.
2. Besides that, every year, the Red Crescent organizes a humanitarian action during the month of Ramadan, “Ramadan basket”, which aims to help the poorest people to provide them with food kits.
3. Not forgetting of course, the enormous task developed by the Tunisian Red Crescent in 2011 during the events of Ras Jdir in the south of Tunisia. The Red Crescent led the Choucha camp that has protected thousands of refugees crossing each day the border between Libya and Tunis. With the support from other National Societies and non-governmental organizations, the Tunisian Red Crescent has assured accommodation, meals, hygiene kits, clothing, health and psychological support. Currently, there are a few hundred refugees at the Choucha camp awaiting host countries.
