@Disaster Preparedness and Relief > Introduction

Since 1994, Disaster Preparedness and Relief has been a major area of work for the Macau Red Cross._ It was introduced to offer financial support to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and the Red Cross Society of China for their work in relieving disaster-afflicted areas in Mainland China and around the world._ Also, the Macau Red Cross has rallied the Macau community to donate money or material goods to support the disaster-relief efforts.

In recent years, the Macau Red Cross has participated in numerous disaster-relief operations worldwide, including: the 1996 Earthquake in Yunnan Province, China; the 1998 Floods in Central China; the 1999 Earthquake in Taiwan; the 2000 Armed Conflicts in Kosovo; the 2002 Floods in Eastern China; the 2003 Floods along the Wai River; the 2004 Floods in China and the 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake and Tsunami; the 2006 Earthquake in Jawa Tengah province, Indonesia; the 2007 Puer Earthquake in Yunnan province, China; the 2008 Snowstorm Disaster in China and the 2008 Wenchuan Earthquake in Sichuan province of China.  In 2010, we also responded actively to the disaster-relief operations in the typhoon in Taiwan, the Haiti earthquake, the drought in south-west region and the Qinghai earthquake of China.

Following the principles of the International Red Cross/ Red Crescent Movement to prevent and alleviate human suffering, and in order to better promote the Red Crosss humanitarian and caring spirit, Macau Red Cross founded a Disaster-Relief Fund in 2001._ This fund has since allowed us to provide immediate response to disasters, while improving our schemes of disaster relief and preparation and post-relief reconstruction.
