Junior Red Cross (JRC)

         Junior Red Cross is a lifeline of the Red Cross, which works in schools & colleges. Like the parent organization, it was born as a result of war. In 1914 when the World War broke out, school children of Quebec- a Province in Canada-participated in Red Cross work by making bandages, dressings and other comforts for soldiers. The idea soon took seed and by 1915 children all over Canada and U.S.A. began to save money out of their pocket expenses. They pooled it and bought dressings and comforts for the fighting soldiers.
       In 1919, when the League of Red Cross Societies was established, a Junior Red Cross Bureau was opened, to promote Junior Red Cross activities in various countries under the following objects:
    Promotion of Health
    Service to others, and
    Fostering of International friendliness.
The Indian Red Cross Society started its Junior Red Cross Directorate in 1925 and for the first time Junior Red Cross groups were formed in the year 1926. All Junior Red Cross groups follow principles of Red Cross i.e. 1. Humanity 2. Impartiality 3. Neutrality 4. Independence 5. Voluntary Service 6.Unity and 7. Universality. Haryana Branch of the Indian Red Cross Society which came into existence in June, 1971 has been starving hard to make the juniors of Haryana a dynamic, creative and productive and successfully inculcating in the school Juniors the habit of health and spirit of selfless service.
