It is food & water, shelter, being able to take care of personal hygiene, having a dignified safe place, having information about relatives and having access to the right medical and psychosocial care. When someone lacks one or more of these basic necessities, someone is in need. In the needs analysis, in line with the mission, special attention is paid to the most vulnerable. In addition to this, the Red Cross focuses on its aid role and offers assistance that complements that of the government.
