I am very happy to know that the District Red Cross Society, Rohtak has started its website to reach out to the people of Red Cross activities. The People living thousands of miles away can know the smallest thing of the world and the bigger can also be learned through the website in the era of Digital India.  In my view this website will be the milestone in the future for social and welfare activities for human being. I also appeal to the people that they come forward to become member of District Red Cross Society for cause of Humanity.

Secretary Message

 It is very great pleasure for us to launch the website of District Red Cross Society Rohtak.This website will be a very useful tool for the effective working of Red Cross and St. John.  Red Cross is dedicated to alleviating human suffering, upholding human dignity, protecting life, and preventing emergencies and natural disasters such as flood, epidemics, and earthquakes. The fundamental principles recognized by the World Red Cross Movement are impartiality, humanity, independence, neutrality, voluntary, universality, and unity. All components of Red Cross organizations uphold and respect these principles. 


Red Cross Rohtak

During the first world war in 1914, India had no organization for relief services to the affected soldiers, except a branch of the St. John Ambulance Association and by a Joint Committee of the British Red Cross. Later, a branch of the same Committee was started to undertake the much needed relief services in collaboration with the St. John Ambulance Association in aid of the soldiers as well as civilian sufferers of the horrors of that great war. A bill to constitute the Indian Red Cross Society, Independent of the British Red Cross, was introduced in the Indian Legislative Council on 3rd March 1920 by Sir Claude Hill, member of the Viceroy's Executive Council who was also Chairman of the Joint war Committee in India . The Bill was passed on 17th March 1920 and became Act XV of 1920 with the assent of the Governor General on the 20th March 1920 .
