Frequently Asked Questions
How can I become a Red Cross volunteer ?

It is fairly easy to join your National Red Cross. All you are required to do is fill in the registration form and donate a small fee (LINK TO HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER?) annually.
A volunteer is not prompted in any manner by desire for gain. If you are between the ages of 5 to 25 you can become one of our youth volunteers and by so doing you will participate in many humanitarian activities such as reading stories to children in hospital wards.

Older volunteers may become either professional volunteers or home-based care volunteers. The former, are required to volunteer either their time or resources to the National Society, for instance, any private or state employers and employees.

The latter requires members to be at least 23 years of age and above. Home-based care volunteers donate their time to the Red Cross and carry out operational visits twice a week. They receive extensive training from the Red Cross in HIV and AIDS care, treatment and support. These volunteers occasionally work with the bed-ridden and/or the terminally ill
