History of service Australian Red Cross was formed as a branch of the British Red Cross at Government house in Melbourne on 13th of August 1914 by Lady Helen Munro-Ferguson who was the wife of the Governor-General, nine days after the outbreak of the World War 1. And at the same time, she called on the wives of each State Governor to form a local committee in each capital, and that is how the Australian Red Cross was born. The main task of the first Australian Red Cross volunteers was to supply care parcels containing soap, toiletries, special food and games for sick and wounded troops. Within weeks of formation, the Branch was providing clothing and they were, flannel shirts, cardigans, socks and gloves and also medical supplies and equipment. Red Cross was responsible to look after and provide assistance to the survivors of the Battle of the Gallipoli. And they are for the soldiers who fought in Egypt and those who were suffering from blindness and the effects of war.

And Red Cross is always there for all the help they need. And those are what the Australian Red Crosses do as well as the international ones.

Conclusion Most of the time, people just think that “volunteering” is just giving away food to the poor people. Infect, it is more like sharing and giving not just food, it could be anything that could help the poverties and I think one of the most important facts is to give them all the happiness you could. Throughout this assignment, I learnt a lot about how many people out there are having a very hard time while we are doing whatever we want to do and having a best time in our life. To prevent the poverty incensement, everyone have to volunteer around them whenever they have chance to do. So some time in our or their life we will learn and also until there are no poverties in the world so the world can be happy living forever.
