100 Years of Luxembourg Red Cross Stamp

Post Luxembourg issued a stamp to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Luxembourg Red Cross.

Since 1914, the Luxembourg Red Cross has continuously expanded its activities in order to offer as much help as possible to the most vulnerable people, both nationally and internationally.

Therefore, this anniversary is an opportunity for the Red Cross to present its activities to the general public and rally the inhabitants of Luxembourg around the causes it defends.

2014 is also the time to take stock and look back at everything that has been achieved thanks to the involvement of men and women over the past 100 years.

The mission of the Luxembourg Red Cross is to help vulnerable people to live independently and with dignity. By mobilizing human solidarity, it acts in an exemplary, efficient and responsible way to rescue those in distress and prevent situations of material, health and social vulnerability, both in Luxembourg and abroad. The Luxembourg Red Cross acts in accordance with the fundamental principles of the international Red Cross and Red Crescent movement.

Its thousands of volunteers and over 1,700 professionals make it a leading player in the health, social, youth and humanitarian fields. The Luxembourg Red Cross is thus involved in activities as diverse as emergency international humanitarian aid, home care, blood transfusions, convalescence, the care of elderly or dependent people in integrated or day centers, social assistance, the care of migrants and refugees, individual help for people in difficulty, childcare centers and youth centers, or even social and family therapeutic services.

FDC – The Trained Nurses’ Association of India – By India Post

First Day Cover – The Trained Nurses’ Association of India – By India Post

The Association had its beginning in the Association of Nursing Superintendents which was founded in 1905, at Lucknow. The organisation was composed of nine European Nurses holding administrative posts in hospitals.

Like their counterparts in other countries, this small band of women was imbued with vision and a pioneering spirit. They saw the need to develop Nursing as a profession and also to provide a forum where professional Nurses could meet and plan to achieve these ends.

The Association of Nursing Superintendents, therefore, sought the help and co-operation of Nurses throughout the country. At the Annual Conference held in Bombay in 1908, a decision was taken to establish Trained Nurses Association. The Association was inaugurated in 1909. The two organisations shared the same officers until 1910 when, at the first Trained Nurses Association (TNA) Conference, held at Banaras (UP), the TNA members elected their own officers.

In 1922, the Association of Nursing Superintendents and Trained Nurses Association were amalgamated and called The Trained Nurses Association of India (TNAI).

In 1912 the TNAI got affiliated with the International Council of Nurses (ICN). The TNAI along with various responsibilities as a member had participated in the ICN Nursing Abroad Programme since 1950. Under this scheme a number of TNAI members had been placed in institutions abroad to obtain clinical experience on an “earn and learn” basis. In 1974 the TNAI became a member of the Commonwealth Nurses Federation (CNF).
