Donations – your support mean so much to many. One of the best ways to help people in need is through a financial donation. You can help people around the world and in your own community.

Volunteering – volunteers are the lifeblood of the Namibia Red Cross Society. They save and change lives, raise vital funds and with them, we simply would not be able to deliver our services, which help hundreds of thousands of people in crisis every year. Anyone can volunteer. It does not matter what your skills, experience or background are, or how much time you have to give. Even if you only have a couple of hours a week to spare, we will have something to suit you.

Partnership – partnership play a role in NRCS’s efforts to influence the course of humanity. We realize that alone we cannot hope to achieve our mission. Lasting humanitarianism can only be achieved by collaborating with a range of extraordinary partners, from governments to local communities, from business to individuals.
