HYDERABAD: The World Red Cross Day observed on May 8 to celebrate the birthday of Red Cross Founder Jean Henry Dunant will have `Together for Humanity' as its theme this year.

The occasion is a reminder to the society that every individual has a responsibility to render help to people in distress with compassion and sincerity. Its fundamental principles are humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality, a release said.

Red Cross is the largest humanitarian movement in the world with more than 100 million volunteers in nearly 185 national societies to care for the war wounded, natural disasters, medical care, blood donations, first aid and so on.
