Don’t fight your crisis alone, call us 111

From now on, in the event of a disaster requiring humanitarian aid in the form of items or clothing, counselling, or psychological support, Lithuanians are invited to call the short humanitarian aid number 111, and LRK staff and volunteers will provide urgent humanitarian assistance.

Inspired to be the first to help in a crisis

Over the past few years, the Lithuanian Red Cross has faced crises in which it has been active and supportive of the State. The organisation has been a great help during the Covid-19 pandemic, the Lithuanian-Belarusian border crisis, and the Ukraine war crisis.

Every day we are active in helping people in crisis situations, and we know that personal disasters, when people are unable to meet their own or their family members’ basic needs, strike people every day. That’s what the humanitarian short code 111 is for – to be closer to people in crisis and to lend a helping hand when they need it most.
