A major player in the social and solidarity economy, the French Red Cross runs a network of more than 600 establishments and services in the health, medico-social and training sectors.
It also runs 12 regional health and social training institutes.
As a member of the world’s largest humanitarian network, the French Red Cross employs more than 17,000 people who, through more than 70 professions, put their professionalism at the service of the most vulnerable in medical-educational institutes, day-care centres, retirement homes, functional rehabilitation centres, emergency accommodation centres, training centres, international missions, etc.
Since the start of the conflict, more than 6 million people have fled Ukraine to other countries, while a further estimated 7
million are internally displaced. This level of displacement and disruption has an effect not only on the refugees and IDPs, but
also on the host communities and systems called upon to absorb them.
With the humanitarian situation in Ukraine deteriorating rapidly, the International Red Cross Red Crescent Movement
has activated all its emergency response mechanisms and has launched a global multiyear plan to support the Ukrainian Red
Cross Society (URCS). In coordination with the ICRC, the IFRC and the Partner National Societies present in the country,
French Red Cross is opening a delegation in Kiev in order to support more specifically the URCS in the development of its
First Aid Department as well as in its Health Activities.
Under the responsibility of the Head of Delegation, the overall role of the first aid delegate is to:
– Ensure the collection of information requested to support the implementation of first aid activities in Ukraine;
– Explore the development of new activities in the first aid domain;
– Work with the Ukrainian Red Cross Society (URCS) on the implementation of the first aid action plan 2023 – 2025.

– collecting information to have a relevant first aid overview (within the NS and the country);
– following-up the first steps of the action plan 2023 – 2025;
