Red Cross Womack
The American Red Cross is a humanitarian organization led by volunteers and guided by its Congressional Charter and the Fundamental Principals of the International Red Cross Movement. We will provide relief to victims of disaster and help prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies.
Volunteers are the heart of the American Red Cross, and we would like you to join us. We depend on nearly 1 million volunteers nationwide and hundreds of volunteers in the Fort Bragg community to carry out our mission as the world's leading humanitarian relief agency.
As a Red Cross volunteer at Womack Army Medical Center, you can provide support to the hospital in administrative services or professional positions, such as: Physicians, Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), Registered Nurse (RN), Medical Support Assistant, and Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), Massage therapists, yoga instructors. In addition, volunteer opportunities are available in Dental Command (FBDHA) as administrative support, dental assistants, and dental hygienists. Other volunteer opportunities include assisting our military members and their Families facing crisis situations, special events/briefings/fairs, and green ramp. Through all of our programs, Red Cross volunteers help change the lives of countless number of people at Fort Bragg, NC, and across the United States each year.
Further information can be obtained at the Red Cross Womack office. For individuals interested in volunteering at Womack or DENTAC, additional hospital in-processing is required. All volunteers must attend orientation, complete a background check, and any other requirements for their areas of interest.
The Fundamental Principles of the Red Cross
As members of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, the American Red Cross and other national societies have a key role in upholding and abiding by the seven fundamental principles.
The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, born of a desire to bring assistance without discrimination to the wounded on the battlefield, endeavors, in its international and national capacity, to prevent and alleviate human suffering wherever it may be found. Its purpose is to protect life and health and to ensure respect for the human being. It promotes mutual understanding, friendship, cooperation and lasting peace among all peoples.
It makes no discrimination as to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions. It endeavors to relieve the suffering of individuals, being guided solely by their needs, and to give priority to the most urgent cases of distress.
In order to continue to enjoy the confidence of all, the movement may not take sides in hostilities or engage at any time in controversies of a political, racial, religious or ideological nature.
The movement is independent. The national societies, while auxiliaries in the humanitarian services of their governments and subject to the laws of their respective countries, must always maintain their autonomy so that they may be able at all times to act in accordance with the principles of the movement.
It is a voluntary relief movement not prompted in any manner by desire for gain.
There can be only one Red Cross or Red Crescent Society in any one country. It must be open to all. It must carry on its humanitarian work throughout its territory.
The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, in which all societies have equal status and share equal responsibilities and duties in helping each other, is worldwide.
