The activities of the Cyprus Red Cross Society (CRCS) are basically dictated by its raison d’ etre, which is none other than the endeavour to alleviate human suffering throughout the world, both in time of peace and war.
Beyond the traditional and fixed humanitarian activities with which the CRCS has been identified, such as looking after the poor, caring for the sick, blood donations, First Aid provision etc, its humanitarian contribution and action is also dictated by the arising needs. Natural disasters, accidents, epidemics, conflicts, wars and other unpredictable causes of human suffering, unhappiness, destruction and death put its readiness and efficiency to the test. The international character of the Red Cross, which is also one of its basic principles, and also the fact that as a result of globalization and the development of communications we live in an interdependent world, have brought about an increase and broadening of these needs and consequently in the fields covered by the activities of the CRCS.

Bombeiros Voluntários da Malveira
  • Type: Fire Rescue
  • Country: Portugal

It was on 30 September 1944 that a group of citizens from the parish of Malveira joined in what was the first meeting to set up a Voluntary Fire Brigade in this parish.
Alerted to the fact that Malveira had been experiencing an extremely significant outbreak of development, as the words of Mr. Carlos de Araújo, transcribed in the same minutes, prove:
"(...) It was necessary to set up a fire brigade in this locality, since Malveira is today one of the lands with a large population and already with industries".
The Malveira Voluntary Fire Brigade was thus created, based on the 1st General Assembly on 30 September 1944, with Mr. Carlos de Araújo as the organiser of that same assembly, who presided over the founding committee of the Malveira Voluntary Fire Brigade Association.
The first installations of the Malveira Voluntary Firemen took place in a garage, with a borrowed wheeled vehicle.
In 1954 the corporation acquired the first ambulance, preserved and restored to our days.
Since then, the Bombeiros Voluntários da Malveira serve 8 parishes in the municipality of Mafra: S. Miguel de Alcainça, Malveira, Azueira, Milharado, Venda do Pinheiro, Stº Estêvão das Galés, Vila Franca do Rosário and Enxara do Bispo.
At present, the day-to-day life of the Association is made up of immense difficulties, trying at all costs to balance the institution economically and financially, recovering the confidence and credibility lost by past acts.
This requires a serious, present management, which assumes the principles it upholds and which are reflected in the objectives set out.
As far as the Fire Department is concerned, the watchword is the management of human and material resources.
As far as the staff of the Fire Department is concerned, its purpose is to increase the number of men and women joining them, to give the best and most necessary training to all in order to provide better assistance.
"Regarding the means, we intend to adapt them to our needs, reducing the initial number because it is exaggerated and because the vehicles sold do not meet our operational objectives".
