Raising awareness on the use of the “Red Cross” emblem

The Ampara Branch of the Sri Lanka Red Cross Society recently concluded a workshop on raising and educating members of the public on the use of the Red Cross emblem and its protective values. In Sri Lanka, the emblem of the Red Cross is often misused due to a lack of knowledge and understanding of its application. Many erroneously believe that it represents medical practices or pharmaceutical services.
