Swiss Red Cross

As an official partner of the Swiss Red Cross, Helsana is committed to the health and well-being of Switzerland’s population. We work to promote first aid and ease the burden on those tasked with caring for relatives.

About the Swiss Red Cross

Switzerland’s largest and oldest humanitarian organisation, the Swiss Red Cross (SRC) combines the areas of “health”, “integration” and “rescue” under one roof. Through its activities, the SRC protects the life, health and dignity of people in need. With 24 cantonal associations, four rescue organisations and two institutions, the SRC is present across Switzerland and active in around 30 countries around the world.

A successful partnership

Helsana has been supporting the Swiss Red Cross (SRC) since the start of 2020. With our combined forces, we help ensure that as many people as possible are capable of performing first aid in an emergency. We also promote services aimed at easing the burden on people who care for their relatives. 

In spring, the rise of COVID-19 meant that overcoming the pandemic became the focus of the partnership. The partners took the decision to make a joint solidarity contribution to the Swiss population. Helsana donated CHF 1 million to the SRC for its support functions. Helsana also supported the SRC’s Corona Emergency Fund.
