Our History

The National Society was officially recognized by the Government in the Kenya Red Cross Society Act (Chapter 256 Laws of Kenya) as a voluntary aid Society auxiliary to the Public Authorities in the humanitarian field, in accordance with the 1949 Geneva Conventions, and as the only National Red Cross Society which carries out its activities in the Kenyan territory. In relation to Public Authorities, the Society maintains an autonomy, which allows it to act at all, times in accordance with the Fundamental Principles of the Movement.
