Around 660 people work for the Red Cross Basel as volunteers. They work more than 17,000 hours a year. Almost 100 of our volunteers have already turned 60. They are involved in a wide variety of projects: as gods or gods in “Eins zu Eins”, as visitors in visiting and accompanying services, as drivers in the transport service or as a saleswoman in the Gundeli Red Cross shop. Without our seniors we would not be able to realize our offers.
We particularly appreciate her life experience, her diverse skills and her large network of contacts. They approach their work calmly but with commitment. Precisely because the Red Cross Basel has a wide range of offers for older people, I am pleased that older women are also involved with us - so there is a "give and take!"
A platform like seniors@work is worth its weight in gold for us, because it allows us to easily look for helpers to get involved with us. Thank you very much!
