RIYADH: The Saudi Red Crescent Authority marked World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day this week with various events, exhibitions and conferences in the Kingdom.

The SRCA’s activities included marches on the main roads of several governorates as well as lectures and training courses to raise community awareness.

The day is celebrated on May 8 every year to emphasize the importance of alleviating the suffering of people worldwide, especially in countries afflicted by conflict and natural disasters.

In the Eastern Province, the SRCA in collaboration with Alasala College in Dammam, held a series of awareness events on the vital humanitarian work carried out by both organizations.

Those attending had the opportunity to observe medical workers undertake a drill using ambulances for emergencies under difficult circumstances.
