The Antigua and Barbuda Red Cross was established as a branch of the British Red Cross on the 20th of October 1941, and gained full autonomy when the country became independent from Britain in November 1981. By an act of Parliament in August 1983 it became a National Society. In November 1992, the Antigua and Barbuda Red Cross was recognized as a member of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. The Antigua & Barbuda Red Cross for 75 years has been serving the people of Antigua & Barbuda, by providing services in the areas of health, welfare, disaster relief, first aid and youth development. Operating from various locations until we acquired our current property located on the Old Parham Road. We have built a great reputation on the hard work of our volunteers and will continue to Promote, Recognize & Reward our volunteers and social partners.
