In the aftermath of the most recent heavy rains and flooding, currently more than 1,400 volunteers and staff of the German Red Cross in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate are helping those affected around the clock. People who had to leave their flats and houses are being taken care of and provided with the necessaries in many locations.

Football star Kai Havertz is calling on his fans to contribute to those in need:
"I was so shocked when I first saw the images, it’s difficult to comprehend what the people must be going through right now, but I knew I had to do something. I’m in a hugely privileged situation and I hope by starting this campaign supporting the German Red Cross I can inspire others to give what they can to help."

Trust has been a central resource of the German Red Cross for more than 150 years. It is in the very own interest of the GRC to preserve this trust and to re-establish it again and again. The GRC therefore considers itself under an obligation to provide the greatest possible transparency to the state and society, especially with regard to the people entrusted to us who are in need of help. Against this background, the GRChas developed its own minimum standards for the association as a whole, which are implemented as part of a voluntary commitment.
