|About||The IFBC Myanmar Blue Cross is part of the International Blue Cross & Blue Crescent movement|
The IFBC Myanmar Blue Cross Society is a volunteer-led humanitarian agency that speaks out and campaigns on behalf of people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We are part of the International Blue Cross and Blue Crescent movement, and implement the mission themed programs and campaigns of the International Committee of the Blue Cross and Blue Crescent. We are the national delegation representing Myanmar on the International Conference of the Blue Cross and Blue Crescent Movement (ICBCM). We are working towards full consultative status as part of the International Federation Blue Cross and Blue Crescent Societies (IFBC), and organise the humanitarian activities of the Myanmar Blue Cross Society under the direction of the IFBC South East Asian Blue Cross Societies regional directorate.
The IFBC Myanmar Blue Cross operates in partnership with the IFBC Thai Blue Cross along the Thai - Myanmar border, organising, promoting and supporting activities that will increase self-reliance and reduce aid dependency. The Burma Blue Cross district chapters are being established at the refugee camps along the border.
