Austrian Red Cross (Österreichisches Rotes Kreuz)
The private aid organization is enshrined in international law, recognized by law within the state and acts independently and non-partisanly according to its seven principles. That gives her a special position.
The tasks include: ambulance service, health and social services, blood donation, disaster relief and development cooperation, as well as education and training. The Red Cross sees itself as an assistant to the state authorities and is committed to a humane and liveable society. See more
