Origin of World Red Cross Day:

World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day dates back to1922. At that time, the Czechoslovakia Red Cross National Society proclaimed a three-day truce at Easter to promote peace. The goal is to recognize one day every year to advocate for the relief of human suffering from disease, and the humanity of seeing a world free from suffering due to war.

May 8th was chosen, as it is the birthday of Henry Dunant, the founder of the Red Cross.
