What is White Cross?
Like Red Cross, much of the impetus behind White Cross began during World War I in response to the tremendous need for medical supplies. Women in a number of churches began what is now an honored tradition: making bandages and sewing supplies for those in need. After the war, the focus shifted from Allied soldiers to the front-line of medical missions that serve the world's poorest people (see About White Cross for more details)
Today, this ministry chiefly serves hospitals and clinics in Cameroon and Nigeria, and is a critically-important source of bandages, baby items, medical equipment and other critical supplies. From 2011-2012 more than five tons of supplies were shipped from Canada to West Africa.
