Nothing is ever in stone, anything can happen at any time in your life. Who would be there to help? Who would you call? Now take all those thoughts, roll them into one ball, and fly them overseas; out of your comfort zone. That is the thing about emergencies, they can happen anywhere.
The British Red Cross helps more than a million people in the UK every year. They are there to provide practical help in emergencies, short-term care in the home, and teaching life-saving first aid skills. The British Red Cross is a volunteer-led humanitarian organisation that helps people in crisis, no matter who or where they are. They enable people at home to prepare and respond to emergencies in their own communities. Basically teaching others how to help their neighbor, friend, or family member.
Living abroad, I am glad the Red Cross is available. Should anything happen while we are traveling, I have no doubt that we would be taken care to the fullest extent.

Ps- Did you know: The International Red Cross started in 1963, after Swiss businessman Henry Dunant proposed the creation of national relief societies consisting of volunteers to provide help to those suffering in times of war. Carrying out services for the sick and wounded in the First World War and Second World War, their work included sending out food, parcels, medical supplies, and educational books.
