Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Myanmar Red Cross. MRCS is fortunate enough to have one of the strongest volunteer bases in the world. Without our vast RCV network, numbering in the hundreds of thousands, it would be impossible for us to carry out our vital services to the Myanmar public. RCVs work day and night to respond to some of Myanmar’s worst disasters and are always the first responders to any emergency, small and large. Intelligent, driven, selfless, compassionate – our RCVs represent the best of what the Red Cross movement stands for, and are the hidden heroes behind all of our groundbreaking programs.
All of our RCVs undergo a rigorous training program that follows the highest standards. We begin our RCV curriculum with Basic First Aid, which teaches the fundamentals of first response treatment. Following this, RCVs are expected to use their skills in the field for several years, before qualifying for a Standard Aid course. After completion of BFA and SFA and several years of field experience, RCVs can undergo a First Aid Instructor Course, which allows successful trainees to become certified First Aid trainers themselves.
This intensive yet rewarding training scheme ensures that the Myanmar Red Cross produces a highly capable and knowledgeable volunteer base, serving the needs of the most vulnerable populations in Myanmar.
