American Red Cross Blurb

On April 30, the Westmoreland-Chestnut Ridge American Red Cross chapter held a four hour seminar on “International Humanitarian Law” free of charge. Around 18 students attended.

The course covered the Geneva Convention and the purpose of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) – “a set of rules that seek to protect those who do not or no longer take part in hostilities and restrict the means and methods of welfare.” The course also had students actively participating in discussing IHL’s purpose and presence. All participants received a lifetime certification card.
