About Club

Young Swiss businessman, Jean Henry Dunant was appalled by the conditions of the wounded soldiers in the battle at Solferino in the year 1859. So he arranged relief services immediately. He wrote the book ‘Memory of solferino’ suggesting a neutral organization for wounded soldiers. An international conference was held in Geneva and thus the Red Cross was started in the year 1864. In our Campus (SRM Arts and Science College) YRC activities were started in the year 1995.
